I love Cliff Schecter. When he appears on my teevee to "debate" some empty-headed GOoPer strategist it is always a slaughter, with Cliff leaving the set unharmed but his shirt ruined from RightWinger bloodstains. He's the kind of fella I'd want on my side of an argument.
Below is an excerpt of his new book The Real McCain:Why Conservatives Don’t Trust Him And Why Independents Shouldn’t
Break on thru to the other side to see a truly despicable example of McCain's temper and why this would doom the presidential hopes of any other candidate (especially if their name ended with a (D).
Here's the quote. Now to be fair, it is anonymously sourced, but done so by reporters. (can you blame them? They don't want to be the only ones not invited to St. John's next BBQ and Jello Wrestling event at his rustic cabin) I think it should be fairly easy to track these hacks down if this story should somehow leak into the national narrative.
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 bit 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 has been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.Wow. Now That's some Straight Talk!!! Wow.
I can't imagine myself calling any woman, even after the worst day possible, let alone my wife a c*&@!!!!!
Is this true? If so, someone needs to ask him about it.
This is not only hotheaded, it's abusive and cruel.
I've been convinced for some time now that St. John McSame was a bit touched in the head. (Who wouldn't be after 5 years in a POW camp and subjected to torture? ) But to call your own wife that particular word is really a symptom of something dark and dangerous.
What happens if he names Condi Rice for Veep? I've heard she's been making the rounds at Grover's Little Juice Bar. Will he, in a fit of pique unfurl the C-word on her? He apparently did it to his wife. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that exchange! John drops the C-bomb and Condi to removes one of her Pradas and firmly but accurately installs the heel into his temple.
Cruise on over to Cliff's place. He is hawking his book on this subject. If this allegation is true............... Wow!
Apparently Crooks and Liars are on the trail of this as well.
Uh-0h............. Sedona..........We Have A Problem.
