Conservative Rep. Justin Amash R-Mich. reprimanded Sen. John McCain on Twitter this morning after McCain tweeted a joke about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week?” asked McCain, tweeting a link to a story about  Iran launching monkey into space.

After Twitter users complained, McCain demanded that people “lighten up” about the “joke.”
