Thanks be to the Goddess of radio Randi Rhodes for tipping me off to this story:
John "Bomb Iran" McStain "joked" on The Daily Show last night that he bought an IED when he was in Baghdad, Iraq to place under John Stewart's desk.
Not funny--not even a little.
I think "Johnny Got His Gun" should go back to Walter Reid and visit the poor soldiers who have been disfigured by IED's and apologize to them.
Rep. John Murtha was livid about this "joke" and was not at all amused chiding McStain on the House floor. McStain responded by saying people (including Murtha) who are upset over said "joke" need to "Lighten up and get a life." GET A LIFE?!!! Again, not funny. Tell the families of soldiers killed by IEDs in Iraq to "get a life" if they get offended by his tasteless "joke."
As we all know IEDs are the NUMBER ONE KILLER of our soldiers in Iraq. Yeah that's hilarious. What a sick bastard.
How is "joking" about the #1 killer of our soldiers "supporting the troops???" Would YOU feel supported If you were a soldier who has dodged an IED in Iraq and/or saw your buddies blown into hamburger meat by one of these bombs and now suffer from nightmares and PTSD because of it??? Would you be able to "lighten up" and "get a life" if your son, daughter, brother or father is now mentally retarded because of the brain trauma received from being in an IED attack???
The name McStain does indeed fit this waste of space.
He was in battle and should know better.
I hope I see him in person so that I can give him some "straigh talk" and spit in his old, wrinkly face.
FUCK YOU John McStain.
