More on McCain’s temper




Yeah, but didn’t every kid do that? Oh that’s right, no we didn’t.

At age 2, McCain’s tantrums were so intense that he’d hold his breath for a few minutes and pass out. His parents would dunk him in cold water to “cure” him, he wrote in his memoir, “Faith of My Fathers.”

“I have spent much of my life choosing my own attitude, often carelessly, often for no better reason than to indulge a conceit,” he wrote.

Conceit? You mean like calling yourself a hero and passing judgment as to whether others are as good of Americans as you are? (Remember, the question isn’t whether McCain is a hero, the question is how the American people will react to someone who brands himself a hero.) There’s more:

In January, Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., told The Boston Globe that “the thought of (McCain) being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me.” (Cochran has since endorsed McCain.)

Yeah, wonder what McCain said to get Cochran to “endorse” him.
