"I'm Running Out Of Funny Lines"

Of all people, given his time in Vietnam, John McCain should know that war is no laughing matter.

From McCain Greeted by Antiwar Protesters at DC Speech by Juliet Eilperin:

It might have taken Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) a while to figure out how to deal with hecklers, but he seems to have nearly mastered it at this point.

Just minutes after the presumptive GOP nominee began speaking at the National Federation of Independent Business and eBay 2008 National Small Business Summit today here in the District, a protester stood up in the audience and began screaming "War is bad for small business!" As security officers hauled the woman away, McCain started riffing on how the incident highlighted the need for a more civil political debate this year.

"One of the things Americans are tired of, one of the things they're tired of is people yelling at each other in America, have you noticed that?" he said, to loud applause. "They want us to respect each other's opinions.... Americans want a dialogue."
"I'm running out of funny lines," he bemoaned to the crowd.

How the hell can you have a dialogue when one side is constantly hauled out by security? That is not a dialogue, that is a monologue. And like I said war is not funny. Monologues belong with Jay Leno and David Letterman, not in political debates. Americans are sick and tired of war Senator McCain. Try and get with the program.
