John McCain's explosions


Maybe it's cuz he was tortured in Vietnam, I dunno, but John McCain has lost all control over himself.

If we wanna wipe ourselves off the face of the earth and get it over with, I say let's all flock out and vote for this poor soul.

I mean, ya gotta feel sorry for the dude.

Let's give him a break and send him to the White House! He'll probably die there (he's almost 80; raise your hand if your grandparents lived past 80). Or develop Alzheimers (Alzheimers dudes lotsa times have uncontrollable tempers -- but no memory loss whatsoever; see THIS ARTICLE).

But think of the thrill it would give him in his few, last days!

2007: Sen. McCain Lost His Temper And “Screamed, ‘F*ck You!’ At Texas Sen. John Cornyn” (R-TX). “Presidential hopeful John McCain - who has been dogged for years by questions about his volcanic temper - erupted in an angry, profanity-laced tirade at a fellow Republican senator, sources told The Post yesterday. In a heated dispute over immigration-law overhaul, McCain screamed, ‘F— you!’ at Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who had been raising concerns about the legislation. ... (Charles Hurt, “Raising McCain,” New York Post, 5/19/07)


1999: ... at a GOP meeting last fall, McCain erupted out of the blue at the respected Budget Committee chairman, Pete Domenici, saying, ‘Only an a–hole would put together a budget like this.’ ... (Evan Thomas, et al., “Senator Hothead,” Newsweek, 2/21/00)


2000: ‘Are you calling me stupid?’ Sen. Chuck Grassley once inquired during a debate with McCain .... ‘No,’ replied McCain, ‘I’m calling you a f—ing jerk!’"... (Evan Thomas, et al., “Senator Hothead,” Newsweek, 2/21/00)


1995: “...McCain was midway through an opening statement at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing when chairman Strom Thurmond asked, ‘Is the senator about through?’.... McCain later confronted Thurmond on the Senate floor. A scuffle ensued, and the two didn’t part friends.” (Harry Jaffe, “Senator Hothead,” The Washingtonian, 2/97)


1986: "...Sen. McCain Screamed At And Harassed A Young Republican Volunteer.... McCain had just been elected to the U.S. Senate.... Even so, he was not in a good mood. McCain was yelling at the top of his lungs and poking the chest of a young Republican volunteer who had set up a lectern that was too tall... Hinz said McCain’s treatment of the young campaign worker ... troubled him for years. ‘There were an awful lot of people in the room,’ Hinz recalled. ‘You’d have to stick cotton in your ears not to hear it. He (McCain) was screaming at him, and he was red in the face. ... “Stories Surface On Senator’s Demeanor,” The Arizona Republic, 11/5/99)
