The Real McCain? Hair Trigger Temper & A Filthy Mouth

John McCain is apparently pretty quick to anger, this according to a new book by Cliff Schecter entitled, The Real McCain. Now a hair trigger temper might be OK for a Senator but for a President it cold be disasterous. Worse his temper apparently knows few limits, even when it comes to his own wife. reprinted a paragraph from the book.

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.
I would hate to see him on a really tense day make some kind of inexcusable comment like that to a foreign diplomat. Welcome to international incident!
