Sen. John McCain has tweeted what every rational journalist wanted to write Monday: “So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week?”

“Maybe you should wisen up & not make racist jokes,” tweeted back Michigan Rep. Justin Amash.

McCain replied, “Re: Iran space tweet – lighten up folks, can’t everyone take a joke?”
