you have to bear in mind who his audience was

I think the fact that "some people" consider that a joke
- and think it is funny
>is hilarious

I think it says more about him than the audience itself (that one was a given).

in my heart (which most times is not rational)

I want to believe, he is laughing at his audience, not with them

it really is a stupid joke (sounds like Limbaugh)

I think you are giving McCain a free pass. Much like the media.

If Bill Clinton said something like that about one of Obama's daughters - imagine the outrage.

one comparision

perhaps we need a Dem candiadte to remark on a Republican candidate's child

so lets go with Bill Clinton saying something like

McCain's daughter Sidney, got her good looks from her mother and intelligence from her father

thank god, she was adopted

Horrifying.


Chelsea has always been my favorite Clinton.

please explain?

I did a quick goggle search and saw this

Quote:
McCain adopted her two children Doug and Andy, [25] a daughter named Sidney
and saw this

I guess the adopted daughter is Bridget not Sidney

I have a niece named Sidney

The Janet Reno part clearly to me reads like a dig at a very "masculine" lesbian. And I think that's exactly how he meant it.

McCain has a history of publically taking jabs at people in 'humorously' crude ways, though..telling Jon Stewart "I had something picked out for you [from Baghdad], too—a little IED to put on your desk", calling the then-head of the Moral Majority "a pompous self-serving son of a bitch", sarcastically referring to an Arizona retirement community called Leisure World as "Seizure World", etc. Obviously some of those are less potentially offensive than others, but I think it's also true that only people who fit a certain accepted personality stereotype are able to "get a pass" on such remarks--especially when they're people of McCain's stature and those remarks were made publically. If you 'read' to people as being characterized primarily by "no bullshit", "maverick" qualities (maleness helps too)--which, say, Bill Clinton really doesn't--then I think many will be inclined to grant you more license to say things like that, no matter what title you hold.

There are two Leisure Worlds within an hour of where I live

and all my life they have been referred to as "Seizure World" by just about everyone,
even the retirees that live within the those communities

What is Leisure World? Like one of those minimum security prisons for old people they have in Florida with inexplicable security fences?
