Right Wing Nuts on the Move: Hold Their Feet to the Fire & Bomb Iran

MoveOn.org Ad: John "Bomb Iran" McCain

While right wing anti-immigration nuts confirm their commitment to torture [and their love of Abu Ghraib] with the Hold Their Feet to the Fire campaign, John McCain makes it clear where he stands on Iran.

Fortunately, MoveOn.org took full advantage of his stupidity.

It's looking like Giuliani these days.

New TV Ad Cites McCain 'Bomb Iran' Gaffe

Compares Arizona Senator's Remarks on Iran with Bush's Recklessness in Iraq

'Can't Afford Another Reckless President'

WASHINGTON, April 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new TV ad will air next week in early Republican primary states and on the YouTube Web site today criticizing presidential hopeful Senator John McCain for his "bomb Iran" comments at a public meeting with constituents. It calls the Arizona Senator's remarks reckless and compares them to the President's reckless policy in Iraq

McCain responded to a question about U.S. Iran policy by singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" to the tune of the '60s Beach Boys' song "Barbara Ann." The moment was caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube.

"At a tense moment, when cooler heads in his own party and many retired military leaders are calling on the President to negotiate with Iran, Senator McCain's outburst isn't merely inappropriate, it's dangerous," said Eli Pariser, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action. "This isn't 'straight talk,' it isn't leadership, it's just more out-of-control bravado. The country can't afford any more of it," he added.
