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?”
McCain was referring to Iran’s dubious claim that it sent a monkey into space, but the noble values of a fellow Republican Congressman, an Arab-American, prompted him to label McCain’s comment “racist.”
