MCCAIN: "You know, I don't know why it is that, and I'm sure you know, but I still don't know why it is, there's only one ethnic joke that can be told in American politics and that's Irish jokes. And I don't know why that is, but it just is a case. So here's the joke. There's a bar in Philadelphia empty, one guy down on either end of the bar. Finally, one guy gets up, goes down sits down to the guy next to him in the bar and says, where you from? He says, I'm from Ireland. He says, really? He says, I'm from Ireland too! He says, well let me buy you a drink. He says, no let me buy you a drink! They're buying each other drinks, back and forth, and the guy says, well where you from in Ireland? He says, I'm from Dublin. He says, no, I'm from Dublin too! Really? Back and forth, and finally the guy says, where'd you go to high school? He says, I went to St. Mary's. He said, you couldn't have gone to St. Mary's, I went to St. Mary's. Wow! They're buying each other drinks, a lot of commotion, and a guy walks into the bar, sees all the commotion down there at the end of the bar and says to the bartender, he says, what's going on down there? The bartender said, it's just the O'Reilly twins getting drunk again."
