    "in the know" with the most powerful, important person around reminds me of my son when he was about three.  He would pout and sulk if he didn't get all the attention I or his father had at any particular time, even when we had company.  He would interrupt adult conversations demanding deference; anything he did had to command our immediate attention, and he had to be made to feel that reporting to us was the most important thing in the world to us.  If we didn't give significance to him or make him feel that his demands weren't the most consequential thing in our lives, he threw fits or acted out or made messes, including breaking his own things.  He made everyone's lives miserable.

    But he outgrew that behavior before he was four, as we learned not to indulge it.  Obviously McCain was never sent to his room.
