Why John McCain shouldn't be president

He doesn't know beans about rock'n'roll. Here's a video of him answering a foreign-policy question at a campaign rally in South Carolina by singing "bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb Iran...." What's shocking is that he says it's an old Beach Boys song. My feeling is that America cannot afford a president who is obviously entirely ignorant of Vince Vance & The Valiants, who wrote and recorded Bomb Iran in 1980 during that unpleasantness over the hostages. Or maybe McCain was just dissing George Bush? Vince and the boys are from Texas, I think.

Idolhater

No, JNev, YOU'RE wrong. "Bomb Iran" was written and recorded in 1980 by Vince Vance and the Valiants. Read all about it:

That's what McCain was singing.

By the way, "Barbara Ann" was originally recorded not by the Beach Boys but by the Regents. (You can hear their original version on the soundtrack of "American Graffiti.") But that's a separate argument.
