John McCain has quite the temper..,

It seems a new book out called The Real McCain goes into some detail about the Presidential hopeful’s rather infamous temper. In particular it mentions an incident on the campaign trail back in ‘92 when McCain got angry with his wife:

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

One of my very few vices is swearing, which should be obvious by the name of this site, and “cunt” is one of the few naughty words I don’t tend to use. I have no idea why I find it to be taboo considering some of the other naughty words I use regularly, but it always struck me as being particularly vicious and unnecessary. It falls into the same realm as “motherfucker” for me, which is odd because I’ll use just about every other variation on the word fuck you can think of.

In all honesty of all the things about McCain I could have a problem with the fact that he has a short temper and referred to his own wife as a cunt is pretty low on my list of reasons not to vote for him. That’s why I hadn’t commented on this sooner. Then Spocko sent me the following video clip on this very topic and I found it funny enough I had to share it:

Admit it. You’re going to hear John McCunt every time you see one of his commercials from now on too.

  1. I got no problem with him swearing at all.

    I DO have a problem with him portraying himself as a nice guy who has this laid back attitude towards the press (like any good brown-noser) and then goes off on his wife like that because “he had a bad day”  a Bad Day??

    Fuck you Johnny!

  2. I was invited to go and fuck myself today, by a prisoner on the comments page of his transfer dossier.  Given a) he is on a indeterminate sentence, so has to convince the parole board to let him out once the tariff is over, and b) That dossier, with his comments goes to his probation officer, who makes recommendations about whether he is less likely to offend, we are thinking possibly he may need to redo the ‘thinking skills’ course.

  3. Wow. Considering that he knew that he could be seen talking like that to his wife, i wonder what he’s like when they’re on their own!
    Anyway, i think it’s a clear indication of his self control, or lack of it. Quite frankly, if anyone like that were ever to get to a position of power, the rest of the world, including myself, would be shitting themselves. then again, perhaps someone so rash could be easily manipulated? nonetheless, not a good authority figure.

  4. The guy graduates at the bottom of his class, fucks up and gets shot down, becomes a prisoner, gets out then dumps his wife (who faithfully raised his kids and waited for him for years while he was a POW) for some rich young poontang and now flipflops regulary on the issues. Why would anyone ever want this phucktard to be the Prez?!

    Well, ok, rich young poontang ain’t such a bad thing! cool hmm

  5. Let us not forget McCain’s “I hate gooks…always will” rant from eight years ago.  http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/opinion/hongop.shtml

    I realize that the G-word was common parlance among troops during the Vietnam conflict, but its use 40 years later is clearly unacceptable.  I found it interesting that Mr. Waffle quickly spun those remarks to be applied only to his Vietnamese captors.  Sorry, no putting that ugly genie back into the bottle.

    Cheers.
