Skip to comments.McCain Likes Ted Kennedy, Irish Drinking Jokes

In a curious sideswipe, the Arizona senator contrasted the openness of the American tradition with France, "where you shovel off the Muslim youth to ghettos and every once in a while they come out and burn a few thousand cars."
The rest is after the jump.
"What are you gonna do with the 11 million people?" McCain asked rhetorically, referring to illegal immigrants in the U.S. "Are you gonna send them all back? Mayor Bloomberg testified at a hearing last week that the economy of New York City would collapse. And I would argue that the economy of America would collapse."
The Arizona Republican, who said he had just come from a taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart ("so anything after that is a relaxing moment"), also voiced ringing praise for Senator Edward Kennedy.

Huh........dam skippy !!!!
I think McCain is a very seriously disturbed individual.
In any case, McCain got the best reaction of the night for his Irish joke, which, in a ground-breaking exclusive, is reprinted in full below:
"I have to tell the story of a bar here in New York City. It's almost empty and one guy comes in and he sits down beside another guy at the end of the bar. And he says to him: 'Where are you from?'
'I'm from Ireland.'
'Really? I'm from Ireland too'.
"Great, let me buy you a drink. . .Whereabouts in Ireland are you from?'
'I'm from Dublin too.'
'Where did you go to school?'
"I went to St. Mary's.'
'Wow! I went to St. Mary's too. When did you come to America?'
'I don't believe it. I came here in 1970 too'.
And then another guy walks in and says to the bartender, 'What's going on there?'
'And the bartender says, 'Oh, it's just the O'Reilly twins getting drunk again.'"
Perhaps you had to be there.
and he opens his mouth again.
If memory serves me correctly, he's also a good buddy of John Kerry's...and in which political party is McCain going run for president?
Oops---my post should have been italics on---it's from the article.
If You're A Fracking Moron...
McCain In 2008!
Exactly---I'm reading this and thinking, what did we ever see in him?
Beavis and Butthead
Let the Kennedys drive them? *bada bing*
Bless your heart. I saw a nutcase from the first time I laid eyes on him. (You can ask my wife)
Just want to clarify: I used "we" to refer to *some* in the Repub party/conservative movement.
Like you, I was not among them!!
If it comes down to McCain or Rudy, I'll probably have to take Rudy.
At least Giulianni isn't constantly sucking up to the Libs.
That's how I feel every time I think of how much I gave to "Straight Talk America" in 2000.
And this is the thing about Rudy:
Many conservatives' probs with him have to do with abortion and gay marriage. But the President's stance on these positions will become less and less critical as the Supreme Court becomes more and more willing to apply the Constitution rather than political agendas.
My biggest fear of Rudy is gun control.
Hopefully by then SCOTUS will be in good shape.
