WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senator John McCain, [R-Arizona] catches a lot of flack due to some of the off-the-wall comments he makes, but once in a while Johnny Boy, as Vice-President Biden calls him, manages to come up with a gem.
Senator McCain was being interviewed by Amos Soursuckle with GOPickly Magazine when he was asked what he would do about the hellacious mess in Syria.
"Did you say cereal?" he asked.
"No sir, I said Syria, you know like the country."
The 77-year-old Senator grinned, cracked his knuckles, and asked if it was noon yet.
When told it was just 8:35 a.m. he smiled and said, "Goodness where does the time go?"
McCain asked Soursuckle if he had a question.
The reporter repeated it and McCain giggled and said that the solution is very easy.
He took a sip of his Geritol Gatorade and said that what President Obama needs to do is to hire France to invade Syria for us.
McCain shook his head and said that the French aren't doing anything anyway and besides they can use the money we pay them to help repay the tremendous amount of money they still owe us from World War II.
Soursuckle smiled and said that it was a great idea.
McCain whispered that he had gotten the idea from his wife Mindy.
"You mean Cindy" Soursuckle said.
"Cindy?" McCain asked, "Now fella, why in the world would I call my wife Cindy when I know full well that her name is Mindy?"
