You do not want this guy’s finger on the red button.

Via The Raw Story:

John McCain’s temper is well documented. He’s called opponents and colleagues “shitheads,” “assholes” and in at least one case “a fucking jerk.”

But a new book on the presumptive Republican nominee will air perhaps the most shocking angry exchange to date.

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.

First off, this is typical abusive behavior and I have no doubt that if he’s willing to be this nasty with people watching, McCain is even more abusive toward his wife when cameras aren’t rolling. Gross. But beyond that, anyone with a temper like this should never be anywhere near a weapon, and they certainly shouldn’t be in charge of an entire nuclear arsenal.
