Did You Hear John McCain's Woman/Rape/Gorilla Joke?

Do you think John McCain has a little problem with women? His Chelsea Clinton joke was as tasteless as it goes. And of course his answer about birth control and Viagra was classic.

But this 1986 joke during his Senate run is just off the wall.

I managed to dig up this gem from his 1986 race for US Senate, as quoted in the Tucson Citizen:

Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, ‘Where is that marvelous ape?'

I find rape jokes are always a sign of class, don't you?

Pretty disgusting if you ask me. Here's the pdf.
