I hope there’s video. Wonder if he got all bug-eyed with those veins visibly pulsing on his temples? Ol’ McQueeg may have just had his “YEEEAAARRRGGHHH” moment, that many of us have long expected.
Exactly why I would never vote McCain. His temper is legend.
When John is introduced at the next Repub debate, he needs to be met with the loud chant of “amnesty, amnesty, amnesty!”
I am not a McCain fan, but this hardly fits his character or demeanor. Your failure to supply a URL link to the original article places this headline in question.
McAmnesty is still alive?
McCain never has been really good at anything except screwing up. He could not fly, he was a lously POW and he'd a crappy Republican. The only good thing about McCain is that he does not cross-dress....
I won’t vite for him because he has been through too much as a POW, torture and all. I have a world of respect for him but IMHO, he’s tainted from his bad experiences.
My my....wouldn’t you be touchy knowing you just lost your opportunity to be President of the United States for coddling alien invaders. touchy touch
He is a “maverick” after all. LOL
MeCain -Government of 1!
Maybe McInsane’s cabana boys, Lindsay Graham or Richard Burr, can give him a back rub to calm him down....
I’ve met Cornyn a few times. He strikes me as a Texan who could take care of himself if the need arises. Johnny-boy better watch his mouth.
Don’t question the mighty OzMcCain. :-/
Cornyn should know by now that MeCain only works with Democrats!
McCain’s head is capable of exploding at any moment. Just like John Dean’s.
McInsane is the South end of a Northbound horse.
By his own account, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the front-runner for the 2008 presidential race, had trouble controlling his anger long before he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Back in 1999, McCain allowed reporters from the Arizona Republic, New York Times, and The Associated Press to review 1,500 pages of his medical and psychiatric records from his service in the military.
McCain would not allow reporters to copy the records. Only a few papers ran details relating to his temper.
The documents, which include the results of annual psychiatric exams after he was released from a North Vietnamese prison in 1973, indicate McCain was not diagnosed with any psychiatric disorder and had adjusted well to his ordeal. McCain's imprisonment began in October 1967 when he was shot down over Hanoi. However, in response to the question, "What traits do you have that others object to?" McCain answered, "Quick temper."
In one of the documents, a Navy psychiatrist, Dr. P.F. O'Connell, who examined McCain in 1973, said McCain thought he had made progress in controlling his anger during his captivity. "He learned to control his temper better," the evaluation said. McCain learned while a prisoner "to not become angry over insignificant things: not to go to the mat' over some minor provocation by a guard that resulted in needless torture."
A July 5 NewsMax.com article quoted former Sen. Bob Smith, a New Hampshire Republican who served with McCain on the Senate Armed Services Committee, as saying, "I have witnessed incidents where he has used profanity at colleagues and exploded at colleagues . . . He would disagree about something and then explode. It was incidents of irrational behavior. We've all had incidents where we have gotten angry, but I've never seen anyone act like that."
McCain's outbursts often erupted when other members rebuffed his requests for support during his bid in 2000 for the Republican nomination for president, the story said. "People who disagree with him get the f*** you,'" said former Rep. John LeBoutillier, a New York Republican who had an encounter with McCain when he was on a POW task force in the House.
"He had very few friends in the Senate," said former Sen. Smith, who dealt with McCain almost daily. "He has a lot of support around the country, but I don't think he has a lot of support from people who know him well."
An Aug. 2 NewsMax story quoted Andrew H. "Andy" Card Jr., President Bush's former chief of staff, as saying he also has observed McCain's outbursts of anger. "Sometimes he was pretty angry, but I felt as if he was putting on a show," Card said. "I don't know if it was an emotional eruption or it was for effect."
