Maverick John McCain Isn't Afraid To Chew Out Harmless Women At The Craps Table!
Well here is yet another tale of John McCain's terrible anger and simmering rage and also his addiction to craps, a game of chance! Justthree years ago, John McCain nearly assaulted a woman standing next to him at a craps table in Puerto Rico because she touched his arm. Nobody touches John McCain's arms! Don't they know who he is?
Here is the True Tale, courtesy of media investment banker and former New Republic publisher Jeff Dearth, via Michael Kinsley:
McCain’s game is craps. So is Jeff Dearth’s. Jeff was at the table when McCain showed up and happily made room for him. Apparently there is some kind of rule or tradition in craps that everyone’s hands are supposed to be above the table when the dice are about to be thrown. McCain—“very likely distracted by one of the many people who approached him that evening,” Jeff says charitably—apparently was violating this rule. A small middle-aged woman at the table, apparently a “regular,” reached out and pulled McCain’s arm away. I’ll let Jeff take over the story:
“McCain immediately turned to the woman and said between clenched teeth: ‘DON’T TOUCH ME.’ The woman started to explain...McCain interrupted her: ‘DON’T TOUCH ME,’ he repeated viciously. The woman again tried to explain. ‘DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU’RE TALKING TO?’ McCain continued, his voice rising and his hands now raised in the ‘bring it on’ position. He was red-faced. By this time all the action at the table had stopped. I was completely shocked. McCain had totally lost it, and in the space of about ten seconds. ‘Sir, you must be courteous to the other players at the table,’ the pit boss said to McCain. “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? ASK ANYBODY AROUND HERE WHO I AM.”
But because it was Puerto Rico, nobody knew who John McCain was -- or if they did, they were like "Oh, it's just that Panamanian lunatic."
It will be fantastic when President McCain plays craps with Vladimir Putin and ends up getting thrown to the floor in a fit of judo fury.
