CUSSES GOP COMRADE IN SENATE TIRADE

WASHINGTON – Presidential hopeful John McCain – who has been dogged for years by questions about his volcanic temper – erupted in an angry, profanity-laced tirade at a fellow Republican senator, sources told The Post yesterday.

In a heated dispute over immigration-law overhaul, McCain screamed, “F- – – you!” at Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who had been raising concerns about the legislation.

“This is chickens- – – stuff,” McCain snapped at Cornyn, according to several people in the room off the Senate floor Thursday. “You’ve always been against this bill, and you’re just trying to derail it.”

Surprised by McCain’s foul-mouthed broadside, Cornyn told him he was “out of line.”

Cornyn said McCain couldn’t “just parachute in at the last minute and begin making all these demands” – a not-so-subtle shot at the Arizona Republican’s recent AWOL status in the Senate while campaigning around the country for the White House.

That’s a sore point with McCain, who has skipped 42 votes this year and hasn’t been closely involved in the “comprehensive immigration reform” deal for months, even though he is a sponsor of the plan.

McCain blew his top after Cornyn brought up his worsening Senate attendance record.

He shouted at Cornyn in front of a bipartisan group of senators and aides who had gathered in ornate meeting room, according to several people who were present.

“I know more about this stuff than anybody in this room,” McCain added.

The blowup is likely to further revive questions about McCain’s “anger-management problem.”

Brian Jones, a spokesman for the McCain campaign, acknowledged that a “spirited exchange” did occur, though he took exception to a few details.

Jones said that the “chickens- – -” phrase was offered by a McCain ally in the room and that McCain never told Cornyn he knew more about the legislation than anyone else in the room.

“Negotiating such a large and important piece of legislation can be intense, and a spirited exchange did occur,” Jones said. “[McCain] is somebody who feels very passionate about his work and about solving the problems facing the country.”

  1. We do not need a President who blows his cool under pressure. That possibility is scary. We also do not need a President who keeps changing (basically) his views. Who says he will not run a negative campaign (which I liked) and then is nearly totally negative!!! I sense that Barack would change positions but only after research, thought and consideration.–in other words , wise and adviseable flip-flopping, (if one must call it that. )
    GW Bush, of course, never changed one iota; ne;ver flip flopped because it was utterly impossible for him to ever be wrong about anything…let alone correct aN error. Changing course (flip-flopping?) does not really indicate an error, it could simply become adviseable because fresh information has changed the dimensions of a problem. Didn’t the public realize that? And why didn’t Kerry simply sasy that????
    Far worse than a flip-flopper…the stubborn self-righteous mule who was GW Bush! Yes, a Republican Mule! And John McCain now seems to be following in his footsteps. but could McCain change at the flick of a temper tantrum????? Isn’t that a danger in a President? And if he has blown his top many times in the past, how can we rely on calm and considered judgement in the Whitehouse????

    As an Independent, I admired him to an extent during the ’04 campaign…but perhaps it was only his cantankerousness? As a woman, I would not think he would be fun to live with! I think many of us have sensed his anger! Do we need to elect a Hothead?

  2. RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IS TRICKY BUSINESS.

    You need to convince a lot of people and the dumb ones have just as many votes as the smart ones.

    Every once in a while, someone like GW Bush comes along and makes smart people vote dumbly.

    Coming to a conclusion and then maintaining it forever is pretty lame too. Obviously one cannot change their mind constantly.

    I try to make an evaluation of how well they can discuss the issues.

    Still, when you say that “I was against the war before I was for the war” people are not impressed.
