Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran


Remember Howard Dean's the career ending outburst now immortalized in a bottle opener?  Well now we might have another one ... this time from John McCain ... listen up.

For those of us who are sensitive about a looming strike on Iran, this does not come out as funny.  I wasn't going to vote for McCain anyway, but if i were, now  i would start looking for a more level headed leader.

If you think about it, the only chance McCain has is if between now and the election the US launches a strike against Iran putting the Iraq debacle in perspective of a serious culture clash with the Islamic Ijma.  Bombing Iran would certainly do that ... we would be in a whole new ball game.
I give McCain the big rasberry

Update 4/20/2007  McCain's response is ...

When reporters asked if the joke was insensitive, McCain said: "Insensitive to what? The Iranians?"
... well, yeah Senitor, that would be it ... or what, you want to make the Irananians a bunch of inhuman gooks who we all just know should be bombed?
 Sir, the Iranians are not the enemy.
Thanks, M, for bringing this to my attention.

M, waves at someting that went "Bomb, Bomb Iraq" that i was allegidly responsible for ... but it is unclear whether any such a song was ever sung here at fastblogit ... me thinks he suffers from RD "referential dysfunction".

... but I think it is just a liberal wet-dream.
Perhaps, but that was not my interest ... my interest is to find alternatives to bombing Iran.

If you think about it, the only chance McCain has is if between now and the election the US (or even Israel) launches a strike against Iran putting the Iraq debacle in perspective of a serious culture clash with the Islamic Ijma.  Bombing Iran would certainly do that ... we would be in a whole new ball game.

Nobody is really advocating bombing Iran.
No, just joking about it ... shades of Bush saying stuff like "Bring it on!".  McCain is a fear monger and a warmonger ... he was one of the first to lobby for the surge ... now he is subtly lobbying for the only thing that might put him in office.

From Drudge:

One McCain aide who attended the event said McCain was adding a little levity to the discussion and the crowd reacted with laughter.

McCain went on to discuss the seriousness of the issue, saying he supports the President, and he will not allow Iran to destroy Israel.

I'm going to assume that MediaMatters.org is going to try to blow this up into a McCain candidate-ending extravanza; but I think it is just a liberal wet-dream.

Well the liberals seem to be stepping up to the plate to own defeat today! Enjoy your RWG! I surrender.

There was somebody, I thought it was You, who posted a reference to the tune Bomb, Bomb, Iraq (sung to the tune of Ba-Barbara-Ann) very early in the game here at fbi. Maybe it was something you were selling at speaktomecatalog. Anyway, if you never did it, I apologize.

I think Seth should dig out the link to where he posted the song "Bomb, Bomb Iraq" to the same tune. Way back when.
I think i am being accused of something here but i have no idea what it is.  Me thinks the commentor is suffering from referential dysfunction.

The administration is responsible for what has happened in Iraq:  upsetting the balance of power in the ME and creating a breeding ground for terrorists.  Then they mismanaged the war and now defeat is imminent.  But M blames all of that on "the liberals" who were not even in power.  What an absurd way to think!

The thugs & murderers were all in Saddam's government!

John McCain sends a message "get a life"! in the Washington Post

The left is humorless these days & well they should be. I personally don't give a shit about McCain - he's over the hill & begot the atrocity called McCain-Feingold. He's not a conservative either. So...waste your time trashing him in your humorless world! You people are mostly PC pricks!

Terrorism creates a breeding ground for terrorists; not otherwise.
Of course you have those pesky little facts to wish away ....  Is Iraq a breeding ground for terrorism today?  .... Was that the case 4 years ago?
And those pesky Islamists, thugs & murderers who make car bombs, suicide vests & blow themselves up.  The biggest pesky thing the left ignores nowadays is 9-11.

Keep your eye on the ball and follow the cause and effect chain. There were no  "thugs and murderers who make car bombs, and blow themselves up" in Iraq 4 years ago.  And what happened in Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11.  That has been established definitively.

Sure there is "humor" in McCain's gaffaw ... it is just like the "humor" in Robert Duvall's line ...   "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" in Apocalypse Now ... it's kind of "humor" that gives a feeling in the pit of your stomach that tells you someting is very wrong.    Here is a involved blogger's response to your allegid "humor" ...

When reporters asked if the joke was insensitive, McCain said: "Insensitive to what? The Iranians?"

No, dude, insensitive to Martians! Yes, of course to Iranians, and to anyone else who doesn't think that the mass murder of innocent people is funny.

But McCain and the freaks cheering for him in the crowd aren't the only ones who take great joy in the prospect of the total destruction of Iran.

Mark de LA says
Well Ahmadenajad & the Iranians are responsible for most of the insurgency & definitely Hamas & Hezbulia in Israel.  They are not the innocents you folks make them out to be.
 - I knew the left has no sense of humor.

I line with Seth's comment may I offer an description of his problem as probably liberal-rectal-brain implosion.

That looks like a spin article to me, not a factual one. 

Btw, "Iranians" are the people of Iran .... they are not our enemy.  McCain has implied by his thoughtless sound bytes that they are.   As far as my own reading of the factual part of the news goes, it is the Mullahs and their republican guards that are our enemy. 

Mark de LA says
The people of a country (since WW-II) are never the enemy, only their governments & their leaders. Unfortunately, the people tolerate & support their governments & leaders. The armaments of terror seem to be coming from Iran for both Iraq, Lebanon. A humorless liberal will always try to point out that "it's not the people, but ...". Too bad a gotcha joke by McCain didn't have time enough to point such a thing out.

The good news is that Google finally picked up my coin ... the bad news is that neither of the two entries point to this url that contains the pertinant comment.  Perhaps i will to find a way to integrate it with the text of the item.

As will I !

A humorless liberal will always ... 
Fact is there is no correlation between humor and political partisanship ... except that a liberal will laugh at a joke at the expense of a conservitive and visa versa.  I know that politico comedians like Coulter make jokes at the expense of liberals all the time, but that is because they are in the business of perverting our language for fun and profit.   But one hopes that a candidate running for president of the United States is not of the same ilk. Now it looks to me that you are in training as a politico comedian too.  So should i stop looking for any insight in your political remarks?

Only In Poiltics Can This Be Considered News
Posted by: Mary Katharine Ham at 12:17 PM
McCain is running for president!

In other news, the rate of acceleration is 9.8 meters per second, and Bill Clinton likes to chase the occasional skirt.

Extra! Extra!

Also, McCain is recycling his snappy put-downs. Green, I guess, but not cool. Come on, John, you're funnier than that.


Seth says
looks like i lost my coin.

Mark de LA says
Maybe this article about Iran's bombs in Iraq might give you pause to think for a change. There is a very thin line between aiding an insurgency & an undeclared state of war.
