Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) showing off his 4th grade sense of humor
According to a source who attended the meetings, Kyl told the assembled crowd a political version of the classic three-people-in-a-boat joke: "So [President Barack] Obama, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi [D-Calif.] and [Majority Leader] [Harry] Reid [D-Nev.] are in a row boat, and it springs a leak and starts to sink. Who gets saved?"
Answer: "The American people."
What GOP Jews would say if a Democrat had made this joke about Bush, and Republican Congressional leaders:
We're at war! Two wars in fact! And that dirty, liberal, hippie told a joke about our wartime president drowning? Not funny! NOT FUNNY! All that so-called egg head humor does is weaken our troops and give succor to our enemies!!!
What I say:
Dude, its a joke. And a bad one, at that. Chill.
(Also, this is classic IOKIYAR. Also, umm... in the last election, the American people preferred those three people to Jon Kyl)
