Washington (CNN) Sen. John McCain called for a more civilized political discourse on Monday after members of Congress who voted for health care reform reported incidents of harassment and threats of violence.
"There is a lot of anger and passion out there," McCain said on CNN's "John King USA." "Let's change that into a spirited and healthy respectful campaign season between Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives. Let's really go at it, but let's do it with respect, that's the key to it."
McCain noted that he has held thousands of town hall meetings during his long political career. "The only thing I ask people to do is be respectful," he said.
The Arizona Senator wasn't so optimistic about the future of bipartisanship among legislators in Washington. The prospects for immigration reform or financial regulatory reform appear dim, he said, because Democrats have failed to reach across the aisle since President Obama took office.

"Aw, don't voory so much. This is all very civil, ja? Vee vill "respekt" you in zee morning."
Sheesh. What's this asshole McCain expect us to do, when our country and liberties are being stolen right out from under us!? I've heard enough out of Arizona to fill my toilet with three bowls' full of vomit.
Are you listening Sarah?
I know John McCain was tortured in Viet Nam. Did they take his balls?
This is what McNut has always done, let everyone run over him.If his Father had not been an Admiral, John would have been the scullery washing pots.
That's the most soothing thing I have read here in a long time. May it be so.
The domestic enemies of the people do NOT deserve civility.
I hope Juan doesn’t get together with his buddy Eric Holder and decide that the Geneva/Hague conventions apply to this “debate” (”What debate?” - A little Ray Stevens lingo there).
I don’t respect those that are stealing my earnings and private healthcare.
>> What’s this asshole McCain expect us to do, when our country and liberties are being stolen right out from under us!?
That is THE question.
Hey MsCain: They codified 100+ new bureaucracies, many of which are vested with determining when to kill us. Respect? You can keep that with the hope and change and I’ll...
Oh, what’s the use.
I know the MSM is hammering this but i really don’t think it’s going to have much effect.
“Democrats have failed to reach across the aisle”
My dog could have predicted that for him. How embarrassing to make such a statement.
Oh, now that one is a keeper.
Sarah, I’m so very disappointed in you!
McCain is a doddering old fool. Resign already and go drink lots of your wifee’s beer.
Sarah, please dump this nitwit.
This is the kind of slick politician which has Palin’s endorsement.
They must have taken out his backbone.
