McCain's Slip-up

by Joseph Akbrud


Several Vice President Joe Biden recently suggested that direct talks with Iran are possible Senator John McCain sent out this tweet comparing Iranian President Ahmadinejad to a monkey. 

Regardless of how you feel about Senator McCain (or President Ahmadinejad for that matter), it is hard to fathom why the Senator felt it necessary to make such a statement.  What i'm curious is what the ramifications of this will be for Mr. McCain.  This is a prime example of how giving high-ranking officials unfettered access to social media can backfire.

Update:

I'm not sure whether his response makes the situation better or worse.........
