More Of The Comedy Stylings Of Senator John McCain

Think Progress has a golden oldie for those of you who are getting a little tired of jokes about killing Iranians:

The blog Rum, Romanism and Rebellion pulls out a 1986 Tucson Citizen article recounting a joke about rape told by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Speaking to the National League of Cities and Towns in Washington, DC, McCain allegedly said:

Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, “Where is that marvelous ape?”

You know, I’m actually not entirely sure whether that even qualifies as a joke.  It’s certainly more clever than “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt,” but probably not quite as clever as “Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?  Because her father is Janet Reno.”

So, um, any Hillary supporters who were taken in by McCain’s outreach after Obama clinched the nomination?  You, ah, might want to rethink that.

Final Fisheye Photoblogging

Well, probably not the final fisheye photoblogging ever, but the last for now:
* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
I explore exciting new horizons in photographing puddles on cobblestones…

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Fun with reflections in the PPG building.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Kinda looks like an alien spaceship that crash-landed.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Security guard explains to the nice photographer that no pictures of the alien spaceship are allowed (D’oh!). Have I mentioned that the security guard is, like, the natural enemy of the photographer?
