Ragin' McCain

It's not just typical election spin. McCain's legendary temper is a significant problem when you consider that this man could have his finger on the nuclear trigger.

And here's another story that I hadn't seen yet about a late night craps game at a casino in Puerto Rico.
“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.”
As Kinsley points out, it's not just the temper tantrum, it's the sheer arrogance. Who the hell cares who you are at the craps table? If you're breaking the rules, you're breaking the rules. Theoretically, they apply to everybody.
