Who knew John McCain could get on the dance floor and bust a move?

Or at least that the man can do the robot like it's going out of style?

Now you do, and it's everything you thought it could be ...

He took the stage at the Apollo in the Hamptons party at Ron Perelman's East Hampton estate Saturday for his impressive robot alongside Jamie Foxx.

"It's always the ones you don't expect," Foxx said of the 77-year-old McCain to the N.Y. Post after the event. "Republicans love to dance in the Hamptons!"

The Republican U.S. Senator from Arizona and two-time presidential candidate followed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in showing off his killer moves.

McCain tweeted a photo of his performance with the caption, "Had a good time this weekend with @iamjamiefoxx, supporting a worthy cause @apollotheater."

The stripper who saved $1 million in singles could be rewarded even more handsomely for her efforts if the 2008 GOP Presidential nominee has his way.

John McCain is promoting the COINS Act, which would replace the $1 bill with a dollar coin, which would hopefully lead to bigger tips for exotic dancers.

John McCain Thumbs Up

The real impetus is to save billions in printing costs, but The Hill actually asked McCain about a 2011 study suggesting strippers could suffer in a bill-less economy.

For his part, the U.S. Senator from Arizona responded in stride in a Capitol Hill hallway: "Then I hope that they could obtain larger denominations."

McCain, 76, started answering questions from another reporter before a smile spread across his face and he shouted to The Hill, "Fives, tens, one hundreds!"

Things got heated on Meet the Press Sunday morning when Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) alleged a massive Benghazi cover-up and slammed host David Gregory.

In discussing the confirmation hearings for defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, McCain referred to the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks.

"There are so many answers we don't know," McCain said. "So there are many, many questions."

"We've had two movies about getting bin Laden and we don't even know who the people were who were evacuated from the consulate the day after the [Benghazi] attack."

"So we've had a massive cover-up on the part of the administration."

U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) finds himself in some hot water this afternoon following a Tweet he wrote about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Basically, he likened Ahmadinejad to a space monkey.

Iran claimed in January that it shot a monkey into space, while Ahmadinejad vocalized his desire to be the first person Iran sends there when the time comes.

"So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space - wasn't he just there last week?" tweeted McCain in reference to both of these recent stories.

U.S. Sen. and former presidential candidate John McCain watched the movie Zero Dark Thirty and says it left him sick, because it’s misleading and just plan wrong.

The film suggests the CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques led the U.S. to Osama bin Laden. The 76-year-old veteran adamantly disputes this.

He says waterboarding al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, did not provide information that led to bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.

Yet the movie, a copy of which McCain received Monday, indicates that’s what happened. Filmmakers fell for it hook, line and sinker, McCain said.

One of the political world's favorite rumors received fresh legs after both Sarah Palin and John McCain openly encouraged President Barack Obama to drop V.P. Joe Biden from the Democratic ticket in favor of Hillary Clinton.

McCain and Palin, the Republican 2008 ticket, both brought it up this week after Biden's controversial speech in Danville, Va., during which he told a crowd that a Mitt Romney presidency would "put y'all back in chains."

McCain, Palin, Obama

Although he predicted it would not happen, McCain said it would be wise for Obama to take the Vice President off the ticket and replace him with Clinton.

"I think it might be wise to do that but it's not going to happen obviously, for a whole variety of reasons," McCain said in an interview on Fox News.

"I'm not sure if I were [Clinton] I would want [that] ... I think her ambitions frankly are for 2016 and I'm not sure that would enhance that likelihood."

McCain's former running mate Palin has called openly for a Biden-Clinton swap, though she hopes it won't happen, as it would help Democrats win.

Of the "chains" quote controversy, McCain said Biden "continues to say things that are unacceptable in American politics," and "crossed the line" this time.

"Yet he seems to get away with it because it's always sort of a joke," McCain said.

The Biden-Clinton rumor surfaced earlier this year with Obama struggling mightily in polls and some suggesting it would reinvigorate his reelection bid.

What do you think? Should Obama drop Biden for Clinton?

It's amazing to think that when Rick Perry entered the GOP presidential race last summer, he did so as the frontrunner, only to sink like a stone in the ensuing months.

On second thought, maybe it's not that amazing.

The Texas Governor defended the Marines urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan, while accusing Barack Obama's administration of "disdain for the military."

"Obviously, 18 and 19-year-old kids make stupid mistakes all too often. And that's what's occurred here," the Republican candidate told CNN's State of the Union.

Saying the Marines should be reprimanded but not prosecuted, Perry railed against the "over-the-top rhetoric from this administration and their disdain for the military."

A military criminal investigation is ongoing after the video, which purportedly shows four Marines urinating on corpses of slain Taliban soldiers, went viral last week.

Perry's comments put him at odds with ... well, pretty much every other political leader, including those in his own party such as Sen. John McCain, who said:

"The Marine Corps prides itself that we don't lower ourselves to the level of the enemy. So it makes me sad more than anything else, because ... I can't tell you how wonderful these people (Marines) are. And it hurts their reputation and their image."

"We're trying to win the hearts and minds" of the Afghan population, McCain added. "And when something like that comes up, it obviously harms that ability."

Well put ... and pretty much what Obama has said as well.

No one has been charged in the case, but U.S. and foreign officials have called for swift punishment of the four Marines for their actions in the video (above).

Honest mistake or Freudian slip?

Sen. John McCain mixed up Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who he endorsed this week, in a campaign appearance on the latter's behalf.

Speaking on Romney's behalf in South Carolina, the 2008 GOP nominee opined that he has little doubt President Obama will get the country going again.

Pretty funny.

"If he had endorsed Santorum, I mean, I would be like slitting my wrists on the table right now." - Meghan McCain on John McCain's endorsement of Mitt Romney

Like her dad, Meghan McCain does not mince words.

In the wake of Tuesday's Iowa caucus, she didn't hold back on her feelings about surprise second-place finisher and frequent McCain critic, Rick Santorum.

“My father did not become the nominee having anything to do with the Iowa caucus. I find it completely irrelevant," she said. "If Rick Santorum becomes the nominee of this party, I mean, it is going to be bedlam and hysteria like you have never seen.”

As for whether a McCain endorsement will help Romney in next week's primary, the 27-year-old said it certainly couldn't hurt, given his popularity in the state.

"I think in New Hampshire the McCain name is very strong. If my father could run for Governor of New Hampshire right now, he'd probably still win," she added.

Romney leads N.H. and national polls in the Republican presidential race.

The GOP is coalescing around its perceived frontrunner in the presidential race.

John McCain, who battled bitterly with Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination four years ago, is endorsing him in advance of the 2012 New Hampshire primary.

Romney flew to New Hampshire Wednesday after his narrow Iowa caucus win to begin campaigning in the New England state, where he holds sizable leads in polls.

McCain and Romney

He was joined on stage today by McCain, who he called one of America's heroes and a great friend. McCain won the N.H. primary in 2000 and again in 2008.

Will McCain's endorsement help him lock up the nomination early?

Can the two-time candidate help Mitt fend off challengers Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum in the coming days and beyond? Does he even need it?

It can't hurt in New Hampshire, where he's clearly the man to beat, for better or worse. Here's Romney's speech to supporters last night in Iowa:
