|DARWIN THE IKEA MONKEY CONFRONTS JOHN McCAIN|
"You better hope my flying cousins don't hear about this!"
I think Twitter is the greatest thing that has ever happened to public figures. Because it is the surest and most reliable of measure of intelligence to come along since IQ testing. (Isn't that right, Chris Brown?)
Take this tweet from John McCain, a leading Republican senator, not to mention a man who came THIS CLOSE to being president of the United States. A man who doesn't have the sense to run his stupid ideas past a paid adviser and who therefore launches completely inappropriate ad hominem attacks on countries that are just looking for an excuse to bomb us right off the planet.
I refer to a tweet McCain sent out yesterday comparing Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a monkey: “So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space — wasn’t he just there last week?” He then linked to a news story about Iran launching a monkey into space.
A predictable firestorm of criticism ensued, which McCain merely inflamed by tweeting "Can't everyone take a joke?"
Well yes, John, I suppose some of us can. Say, did you hear the one about the senile senator who tweeted himself right into a room at the Slippery Slopes old folks home? Never even saw it coming!
IKEA monkey's note: I don't get it. How is this an insult?
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's note: Everyone knows I'm not a monkey, I'm a dinner jacket!
McCain's note: Yeah? Well your face looks like my mother's butt! Hahahaaaaa!
