quote:
When John McCain came to the Senate in 1987, he quickly got two reputations: a Republican who'd do business with Democrats on tough issues and an impatient senator who was often gruff and temperamental.

Back in Washington, families of POW_MIAs said they have seen McCain's wrath repeatedly. Some families charged that McCain hadn't been aggressive enough about pursuing their lost relatives and has been reluctant to release relevant documents. McCain himself was a prisoner of war for five-and-a-half years during the Vietnam War.

In 1992, McCain sparred with Dolores Alfond, the chairwoman of the National Alliance of Families for the Return of America's Missing Servicemen and Women, at a Senate hearing. McCain's prosecutor-like questioning of Alfond ó available on YouTube ó left her in tears.
Four years later, at her group's Washington conference, about 25 members went to a Senate office building, hoping to meet with McCain. As they stood in the hall, McCain and an aide walked by.

Six people present have written statements describing what they saw. According to the accounts, McCain waved his hand to shoo away Jeannette Jenkins, whose cousin was last seen in South Vietnam in 1970, causing her to hit a wall.
As McCain continued walking, Jane Duke Gaylor, the mother of another missing serviceman, approached the senator. Gaylor, in a wheelchair equipped with portable oxygen, stretched her arms toward McCain.


"McCain stopped, glared at her, raised his left arm ready to strike her, composed himself and pushed the wheelchair away from him," according to Eleanor Apodaca, the sister of an Air Force captain missing since 1967.

McCain's staff wouldn't respond to requests for comment about specific incidents.
But Mark Salter, a longtime McCain aide who functions as the senator's alter ego and the co-author of his books, said that, "McCain gets intense, and intent on his argument."
His blowups with senators often result from colleagues being accustomed to deference, he said.

"A lot of these guys aren't used to that," Salter said, so they get annoyed when a peer gets emotional.

McCain's presidential campaign has tried to use his reputation to its advantage; in an early television ad, McCain said: "I didn't go to Washington to win the Mr. Congeniality award ... I love America. I love her enough to make some people angry."

I didn't have time to put in a comment before but the rest of the article gives other examples of McCain's explosive temper.

Concerning temper, this is one area where McCain and Bill Clinton are exactly alike. LBJ ripped ass as well as Truman and others. Obama ios getting there as he is showing signs of wearing thin.

Interesting.....the article is about a republican and one of the replies mentions examples of three democrats without commenting on the article itself. Deflection at best.

That is a very creative way of making McCain sound like a Democrat. Thatís a compliment.

Sorry guy the Obama reference is inflammatory and racist. Obama has shown zero sign of any kind of an emotional outburst. When you use the phrase "wearing thin" you are saying that blacks do not have the emotional temperament to be in government. Thatís not a compliment.

You should watch Birth of a Nation again.

He'll definitely lose his temper and nuke someone within 3 weeks of the inauguration. I bet North Korea ticks him off, but he nukes North Vietnam instead. Maybe Somalia. We should have a pool.

Ah, the age old democrat "let's shut down the debate by calling the opponent a racist" technique. Sorry, that went out about 1992... the same time McCain supposedly shoved the woman in a wheelchair.

What in the hell are you talking about?? The last thing I am is a racist. Do you really want to go there with me??

The phrase 'wearing thin' is now a slur against black people??

Well let's get to it- I've got a question for you- what part of the country do you live in, Swifty??

You have got to be f*cking kidding me. Are you on the Left really this f*cking wack?? You guys are losing it all over America right now.

This is simply an amazing phenomena going on right now. Truly crazy.

The fact is that it's well known what this kind of expression refers to and it's racist. There was no place or context for you to include Obama here. You decided to make an inappropriate aside. Just apologize and letís move on.

I absolutely am not getting this. I have NEVER heard the phrase 'wearing thin' used in any type of racist context and did not get that impression from Derek's post. I have used this phrase myself often (usually when referring to my own mental/emotional state) and not once have I used it with any thought of racial overtone.

He'll let Alaska secede and the BOOM! Civil War Part II is over.
We can nuke them if they secede and turn Alaska in A-Lake-a.

I'd get blasted right off this damn board!

I learned all the additional knowledge I can bear for today. First, "wearing thin" and now ^nn, since it is a slur I coded it to get it past the filters.

This race Sh!t is just ridiculous - Is Swifty really Al Sharpton?

I do like people who get emotional-all kinds of emotions. I like even better when the person has control of their emotions.
examples from both sides:
McCain is known as a hothead and would harm himself if he loses control during the campaign.
Obama is known to get in trouble when he gets hot over an issue and lets his mouth get ahead of himself. A much better controlled speaker.
So, either could yet shot themselves in the foot before the election is over.
I wish political ads, including local issues here in Denver, would talk about what they are for instead of trashing the other person. There are issues on the Denver ballot that I have to research because each side is doing a smear ad campaign against the other and neither even talks about what the issue on the ballot is!

Bullsh*t. It isn't. I have damn near heard it all now. What state do you live in, Swifty??

Folks, everybody thinks I'm wack when I say it until something like this pops, but here is more evidence that some forms of liberalism are, in fact, a mental disorder. The above is my latest proof.

Jesse can use the "n" word, BO can point out that he don't look like the other faces on dollar bills, and by the way - I'm black. Rev. Wright's US of KKK.

I'm wearing thin of this racial crap.

Two men are running for President.

I mean you trying to throw down with tired old phrase like "He is down with the brothers." You're a real hep cat, OTF. You might as well throw out "22 f*ckin' skidoo," for crying out loud.

True but there are a lot of charges of sexism right now. Even Rush Limbaugh has taken up political correctness.

LMAO!!!

Interesting phenomenon here (aside from the one Derek spoke to in his earlier post ). I totally forgot that the topic of this thread started out as McCain pushing a woman in wheel chair using portable oxygen and began thinking the subject at hand was racial terminology.
