WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- Congressman Justin Amash of Grand Rapids isn't very pleased with a comment made online by fellow Republican Senator John McCain. The Arizona lawmaker joked on Twitter Monday about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wanting to be the first Iranian in space, tweeting quote, "wasn't he just there last week?" McCain posted a link to a story about Iran sending a monkey into space, to which Amash, who is of Syrian descent, fired back on Twitter "maybe you should wisen up and not make racist jokes."
