McCain AKA McNasty Calls Wife The C-Word?

This is a few months old, but I never did post it on this blog, so I'm doing so now, having just been reminded about it on another blog I was just reading.

Did you know...

In highschool, John McCain's nickname was McNasty? HAHA! I got a good laugh out of that one.

Why? Well, why else? His temper, of course... something we've all heard about via the media since his campaign began. Apparently, the man is prone to fits of rage, cursing and belittling members of his staff, and even friends and family, often after little provocation, if any at all.

For example, the book, The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter, which was printed earlier this year, reports of an angry exchange between McCain and his wife that happened in the presence of his aides and reporters during a 1992 campaign stop. Here's what the book says:
Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.
How about that? McNasty in action! I can actually see that happening. I wish someone had a video clip of this; I'd love to have seen how his wife reacted to it. To my knowledge, McCain nor his camp haven't addressed the book nor its contents.

There was the below video in which he was asked about the incident, but he refused to answer the question:

    OK... why are people in the video clapping?

    I'd have liked to have known the answer to that question if I was in that audience, ESPECIALLY if he was intimating, on my behalf, that I might not like or respect that kind of language!

    Well, Mr McC***?

    Refused to answer? Wow, what a surprise...
