John McCain: He So Crazy

Well, it looks like John McCain's attempt to mend fences with the base has finally got some results. Rightwing news outlet has run a hit piece on him using a familiar theme from the 2000 presidential campaign, that he's insanely angry and unfit to be the Commander and Chief. From NewsMax:

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is considered a front-runner for the 2008 race, but does McCain have the temperament to be president?

As portrayed by the mainstream media, McCain is an engaging war hero, a man of political moderation positioned between the left and the right.

But to insiders who know him, McCain has an irrational, explosive side that make many of them question whether he is fit to serve as president and be commander in chief.

Actually, if you read the rest of the article, it would lead you to believe he has never had a conversation that didn't end with him telling the other party to fuck off. He is also portrayed as a complete paranoid. Also from NewsMax:

"People who disagree with him get the f--- you," said former Rep. John LeBoutillier, a New York Republican who had an encounter with McCain when he was on a POW task force in the House. After LeBoutillier had openly tape recorded comments at a conference, McCain got the idea that LeBoutillier was secretly tape recording him.

"Are you wired up?" LeBoutillier quoted McCain as asking. "Of course not," LeBoutillier said.
"Prove it," McCain said.

LeBoutillier said he lowered his pants, apparently satisfying McCain that he was not taping him.

It should be noted that LeBoutiller actually writes for NewsMax now, and does regular appearances on right leaning radio under their banner. It's always nice when you don't have to bother to go out of house to get your hit quotes, isn't it?

The bottom line is that these people are never going to accept McCain no matter how much he reaches out to them. They're gonna punk him again. Hell, we're not even through the 2006 elections and they are taking shots at him for 2008, and I'm happy to pass those shots along. That McCain fucker is nuts.
