John McCain has a legendary temper, which is one way of saying he loses control and goes ballistic over basically nothing.
It's a pattern. Much like his womanizing is a pattern. I don't quite see the same pattern in his dehumanizing put downs of Cindy, his wife. After I read some of the excerpts from a new book about McCain, I have decided to forgive his wife Cindy for stealing prescription drugs from her charity. Being married to John McCain is excuse enough for anyone to want to escape reality.
I'm not posting any of the book quotes. Go read the review for yourself.
I do have to strongly question how out of control McCain gets over small slights. He seems to have little dog syndrome and is lucky he hasn't been squashed like a bug.
