Quick News on McCain

leave a comment »

Sometimes no news is good news.

For the last several weeks McCain has been flying under the wire while all eyes and press has been glued to the Obama/Clinton feud… er, I mean race, race… the Obama/Clinton race.

Well, McCain is getting noticed again and not for good reasons.

MoveOn.org, a liberal public advocacy group, has put out a list called 10 Things You Should Know About McCain.   Number one on the list is that McCain was against establishing MLK as a holiday in Arizona (last week on the 40th anniversary he admitted he as wrong).  The list also notes that the Children’s Defense Fund has named him one of the worst senators for children because he voted against voted against the children’s health care bill last year and his answer to people losing their homes was to get a second job and skip vacations although he owns eight homes himself and is one of the richest men in congress.

I think my favorite was number 7 on the list:

Many of McCain’s fellow Republican senators say he’s too reckless to be commander in chief. One Republican senator said: “The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He’s erratic. He’s hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me.”7

It’s that temper that has brought about another news story.  The website Rawstory got an advance copy of a forthcoming book “The Real McCain” by Cliff Schechter.  In the book Schechter cites 3 background sources for an incident 16 years ago when McCain was on the campaign trail.  The alledged story goes that Cindy McCain was playing in her husband’s hair and jokingly noted the thinness to which he replied, 

At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c___ (rhymes with hunt).

No word from the McCains yet denying the story. 

Perhaps he should think about making Rice his vice president.  It could possibly make inroads with female voters especially after that (deep sigh) “c” calling story.

But word to McCain,  even if she was Vice President I wouldn’t try calling Condoleeza out of her name.  She often gives looks that makes me thinks she knows a bit about torture and as a former POW and torture victim, I don’t think you’d want to go there with her.
