    Thumbs down John McCain thinks rape jokes make him "authentic"

    McCain campaign refuses to deny that McCain used to like to tell rape jokes. In fact, they say rape jokes are the kind of thing that Americans love him for.

    "He's long said that he's said and done things in the past that he regrets. You've just got to move on, and be yourself - that's what people want. They want somebody who's authentic, and this kind of a stuff is a good example of McCain being McCain." - McCain spokesman yesterday. See Keith Olbermann's take.

    I'd like to know the context in which he said the joke. If it was with a bunch of guys, goofing around, I thinks it's totally forgivable...it was 20 years ago.
    However, if it was in a speech he gave, or some other political or professional format...it's quite a heinous thing to say.

    the joke supposedly was:

    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?’

    McCain denied it 22 years ago, and has denied it now....

    Just yesterday I made a joke here about David Beckham getting into a car accident with his kid, and how it would be great to rid the world of some chavs....

    Not all humor needs to be PC...and that rape joke isn't offensive to me...

    I'm more annoyed by the fact that he tends to 'forget' previous
    comments he made when pressured about them later. He either
    outright denies them or 'doesn't remember' them.

    John McCain being John McCain:

    Are people with long term and short term memory loss really
    qualified for presidency?

    I will be horrified if he is our next president.

    Exactly. It's not a laughing matter, so why make the joke? And that being with friends "goofing around" does not make it forgivable. It makes him and his friends look like pigs.

    The joke is offensive and not clever. It tries to legitimize the idea some sickos have that women secretly enjoy being raped.

    Jokes like that are disturbing, because of what they're implying. It wouldn't be a big deal if he just owned up to it for once.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
