Meet President McNasty
John McCain's depressing tour of places where he used to be young has also reminded America of his high-school nickname, "McNasty." Even before he was a brain-damaged old psychopath, McCain was a mean, angry creep. Let's remember all the times Walnuts went nuts in public, so we can prepare for the inevitable campaign-trail explosion that will end his campaign to be America's Oldest President.
- McCain "often insults people and flies off the handle," the New York Times reported.
- The Arizona Republic was writing about his "volcanic temper" the last time he ran for president, in
- His former colleague in the Senate, Republican Bob Smith, says McCain is a nutter: "I have witnessed incidents where he has used profanity at colleagues and exploded at colleagues ... He would disagree about something and then explode. It was incidents of irrational behavior. We've all had incidents where we have gotten angry, but I've never seen anyone act like that."
- Former Congressman John LeBoutillier, another Republican, says this: "I think he is mentally unstable and not fit to be president."
- Basically everyone on Capitol Hill has been the victim of McCain's sociopathic tirades, and many have the apology letters from McCain to prove it.
- "Nowhere is that sentiment stronger than in the Senate, where McCain has few friends or supporters. In fact, when McCain ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2000, only four Republican senators endorsed him," writes the conservative website NewsMax.
- When two Arizona medical doctors met with McCain to discuss a local endangered squirrel, "He slammed his fists on his desk, scattering papers across the room .... He jumped up and down, screaming obscenities at us for at least 10 minutes. He shook his fists as if he was going to slug us."
- Says another GOP colleague in the Senate, "I Didn't Want This Guy Anywhere Near A Trigger."
- A furious McCain regularly throws F-bombs at his colleagues for no apparent reason.
- In 1995, at the Capitol, McCain had a "scuffle" with 92-year-old Republican Senator Strom Thurmond. That's right, McCain tried to beat up the one person who was even older than McCain himself.
- "It was election night 1986, and John McCain had just been elected to the U.S. Senate for the first time. Even so, he was not in a good mood. McCain was yelling at the top of his lungs and poking the chest of a young Republican volunteer who had set up a lectern that was too tall for the 5-foot-9 politician to be seen to advantage, according to a witness to the outburst."
- "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine," Republican Senator Thad Cochran said about McCain. "He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."
