John McCain is a Boss

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Monday made a joke comparing Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a monkey.

“So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space - wasn't he just there last week?” McCain said in a tweet that also linked to a story about Iran launching a monkey into space.

Edited: I was told this is racist and not funny. So dont anyone laugh.

Calling people monkeys is funny? Pretty sure it's racist.

I don't find that racist. He didn't call him a sand n****r or anything like that.

It's OK when you do it to Arabs

I've not seen "monkey" used as an ethnic slur against Arabs (wouldn't make much sense).

As to the topic, I'd be all for sending Ahmadinejad into space.

Its somewhat amusing. Although PETA might find it offensive.

Yeah I dont really get it- is it because he is hairy? Also, I somehow doubt John McCain really tweets things, hes in his late 70s

Joked about it because Iran supposedly launched a monkey into space.

Comparing Ahmadinejad to the monkey was essentially a "you're a moron" statement.

(joke of opportunity; not necessarily a great one, but it was there)
