McCain's Jokes-Offensive?

When McCain was said to have made a joke about the then young Chelsea Clinton's looks, I thought it couldn't be true. Sadly it was. "Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?" he asked...Then he answered, "Because her father is Janet Reno." I found this disgusting that a grown man could make fun of a young lady's physical appearance. Then there's this one: He said a woman was dragged off, beaten, and raped repeatidly by a wild ape. She passed out. When she came to, he said she sighed and asked "Where's that marvelous ape?" He said these jokes to large audiences in public. What kind of judgement does that show, and how can his supporters overlook stuff like this ?

  • I'm not a McCain supporter. But, I hope that if you're an Obama supporter you're not passing around garbage rumors about McCain.
