McCain the Humorist

Gosh, maybe Conspiracy Theory Central has been all wrong about John McCain. In yesterday's post we said he looked like dried snot and lacked pizazz. But who knew Sen. McCain was such a comedian? Schecter's new book The Real McCain contains the following interesting nugget. Joke told by McCain at 1988 Republican fundraiser: "Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly?" he asked. "Because Janet Reno is her father." Link. We literally fell out of our chair reading that one. If this running for president thing doesn't pan out, we strongly urge John McCain to ditch the senate and embark on the standup comedy circuit billing himself as the "angry old pol". Seriously, I think the man has talent.
