John McCain, angry misogynist

John McCain's temper is well documented. His nickname in high school was "McNasty." As an adult he has called opponents and colleagues "shithead," "asshole," and "fucking jerk." But an excerpt from the upcoming book "The Real McCain," by John Schecter, reveals that McCain is more than just an ill-tempered ogre:
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.

If McCain is elected president, we will all have many long days.
