Not so funny…

 

In order for people to laugh at a joke it has to be funny. I think that’s rule number one for joke telling, but I’m no comedienne. I have heard of some of John McCain’s jokes, and rather than make me laugh they make me angry. For instance, how can someone really joke about Chelsea Clinton being ugly? Whether you support Hillary Clinton or not, I think we can all agree that politicians’ kids should be off limits. In addition to that, how can your sick sense of humor allow you to joke about killing innocent Iranians with cigarettes? That’s just not funny! We may all tell off color jokes to our families and close friends, but we know for the most part how they will react. John McCain, a presidential candidate, needs to watch his humor, as it could eventually turn people completely off to him…

Ben Smith @ Politco has an interesting take here.
