God bless Twitter.

Who knew that this, “The Handshake” today in South Africa between Barack Obama and Cuba’s Raúl Castro,…


would lead to Senator John McCain saying something bizarre? Here’s the audio:

Here is what McCain said: “It gives Raul some propaganda to continue to prop up his dictatorial, brutal regime, that’s all.”

Then asked about whether Obama should have shaken Castro’s hand, McCain said this:

And then it happened.

“Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler,” he added.

Apparently McCain forgets his own past.

Here is the original tweet:
