        PR casino is something which happens in public.

        At some point people who claimed to admire McCain because they bought into this bs that he was an independent, maverick kind of straight talker, might have missed the part where a good deal of his life was spent suppressing explosive rage.....and that the best which can be said for him is that he his calculated appearance as a bipartisan pal of Joe Lieberman comes out of the fact that he dodged a bullet in the Keating Scandal.

        These meltdowns are no different from every other meltdown he has had over his career.  People like McCain don't need no time to craft or consider their presentations, because HE IS JOHN MCCAIN, DAMMIT,  and he has never been accountable for anything.  Including being unfavorably rude to people in public places, like casinos and airports....and other places where he has contact with the public.
