    Clearly this guy wants to go to war with Iran.

    That or he's a very stupid man.

    Yup. So I will now be watching your jokes for signs of what you REALLY mean.

    What? You mean jokes don't accurately tell us what people are thinking?

    This is exactly what America must avoid, bellicose statements like, "wiping Israel off the map." Where do you draw the line between (poor taste in) humor or insidious empty threats?

    Saber rattling only increases the belligerence of Iran's hardliners and undermines America's credibility among our allies.

    Mr. McCain should offer a formal apology to the Iranian people, the most pro-America Muslim nation, and America's greatest ally in Iran against Islamic fundamentalism.

    Hahahaha!!!

    What a hoot, Senator!!!

    That's exactly what we need on the campaign trail ... more "jokes" about killing foreigners from our candidates.

    I can't wait to hear the knee slapper Barack comes up with to top McCains ...

    You may have a point. Much of Iran is sympathetic to the western world, and the USA. Jokes like that from mclame won't help anything. He better watch his nasty old mouth.

    Oh for Pete's sake.

    I see a lot of people who need to spend more time exercising their bodies and less time analyzing every utterance of political candidates, looking for screw ups.

    I think it's funny. I don't think it's indicative of anything except a sense of humor.
