From a recent stop on the "Straight Talk Express" tour:

Another man — wondering if an attack on Iran is in the works — wanted to know when America is going to “send an air mail message to Tehran.”

McCain began his answer by changing the words to a popular Beach Boys song. “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran,” he sang to the tune of Barbara Ann. “Iran is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. That alone should concern us but now they are trying for nuclear capabilities. I totally support the President when he says we will not allow Iran to destroy Israel.”

Sweet. To wash that down with some hearty liberal LOLs (while we still can), check out the Fox News Kurt Vonnegut obituary that's been circulating the interwebs for a few days. There's more levels of irony in this short video than easily counted.

    What-up with McCain? The Straight Talk Express is more like an out-of-control locomotive headed for loony-ville...how many times will this mind-addled old fart "misspeak" before he become a full-on national joke.

    To remind everyone, here's his now-famous condom misspeak:

    Q: “So no contraception, no counseling on contraception. Just abstinence. Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?”

    Mr. McCain: (Long pause) “You’ve stumped me.”

    Q: “I mean, I think you’d probably agree it probably does help stop it?”

    Mr. McCain: (Laughs) “Are we on the Straight Talk express? I’m not informed enough on it. Let me find out. You know, I’m sure I’ve taken a position on it on the past. I have to find out what my position was. Brian, would you find out what my position is on contraception...
