such a nasty woman | by maryann johanson

watch it: “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran”

I’m in England at the moment, where I’m getting an, um, interesting perspective on the American presidential campaigning. So just to be perverse, all this week I’m highlighting YouTube video of Republican candidate John McCain, for two reasons. 1) He’s a nut, and as many people as possible need to know that before they go to the polls on November 4. And 2) The possibility that McCain could potentially be derailed as a candidate through his own words — as propagated on YouTube — is a banner moment for the Internet. Theoretically, this kind of material has always been available before… if the mainstream corporate media deigned to air it. Today, we can see it for ourselves… as long as the word about it gets out.

McCain thinks bombing Iran is hilarious, but just as bad is the aggressiveness of the question that prompts McCain’s response, and then the audience’s response to McCain. Are we really such a nation of warmongers who hate brown people?

(In the interest of equal time, I welcome hearing about any similarly scary YouTube video of Barack Obama. Just drop me an email with a YouTube link.)

    Back in the day, the Z-Morning Zoo (on Z-100 !) in NYC distributed a similar song in the late 80’s, early 90’s called “Bomb Iraq”.
