The unsettling issue of John McCain’s emotional instability

Most Americans are unaware that John McCain is infamous on Capitol Hill for repeated displays of volatile temper, often laced with language so foul that his “values-oriented” backers would be shocked to see how wildly vulgar their man can get.

He isn’t just a loose cannon in this regard, but a veritable, errant artillery battery of shoot-from-the-hip, dirty-lip verbiage directed at foe and friend alike.

Included are well-documented fusillades striking fellow Republican senators Cronyn, Grassley, and Domenici. McCain even went ballistic against his own wife, calling her a “trollop” and an obscene term for the vagina when Cindy made the mistake of remarking about her husband’s hair loss.

What’s the big deal? After all, Harry Truman and a number of other U.S. presidents also did their fair share of swearing.

True enough, but they weren’t held for over five years as a POW, a circumstance that could make anybody unbalanced, and they never expressed worry over their own temperament (as McCain has reportedly done). Importantly, they didn’t have a bellicose record of being rigidly predisposed to military “solutions” above diplomacy, never mind how wrong and antagonizing to humanity the U.S. foreign-policy purpose in question.

Add to that the demonstrable fact that McCain gets matters screwed up on a regular basis, as someone flirting with senility would do, and you wind up with a troubling mental portrait.

I wouldn’t want a Commander in Chief who confuses Sunnis and Shiites, thought that Czechoslovakia still existed, believed that Iraq and Afghanistan share a common border, etc. And certainly not one who doesn’t know how many houses he owns, or imagines that $5 million is the threshold of wealth.

It’s frightening that such muddle-headedness rides tandem with a slippery tendency for McCain to fly off the handle, spouting a blue streak, possibly sending a quivering finger toward the trigger that starts war, perhaps including thermonuclear holocaust.

Paris Hilton amusingly views McCain as just a wrinkly, old, white-haired dude.

But could he actually be someone who’d invite Armageddon, in a mad variation of the concluding scene from Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove”?

Given the overwhelmingly reactionary nature of this misnamed maverick’s politics, we shouldn’t vote for McCain in any case. For working-class Americans to do so would be like voluntarily opening wide their billfolds to mercilessly exploitative Big Business and High Finance thieves.

After all, peering into Monopoly’s silk-lined vest pocket will reveal George Bush and John McSame, plus the entire Greedy Old Party, staring right back.

But it’s McCain’s instability, and quick belligerence, clouded by a blunted command of things as they actually are, that makes him most unacceptable.

He may now have a physical clean bill of health, but we should be very worried about what an honest psychological evaluation might reveal



  1. Washington is one big silk-lined vest pocket, and Obama is only going to pin a smiley face on the front.

    Just being fair!

  2. Wake up . Obama is only out for Obama. We dont vote for an anti Americans. Obama is an ANTI AMERICAN COMMUNIST SELL OUT. He wants ALL African Americans to believe you are the underclass.When you apply for a home loan do the banks care about the color of your skin? NO they only care on how much you can get a loan for, This is based on your credit score. I know I refinanced my home and the company that got it done NEVER SAW ME ALL BY PHONE AND FAX. Dont let him put this GREAT NATION DOWN .WE ARE AMERICA WE THE PEOPLE. NOT ANYONE COLOR OR RACE. NOT ANYONE RELIGION . BUT ONE AMERICA.

    You DONT RAISE TAXES WHEN THE DOLLAR IS DOWN . YOU DONT CUT THE FUNDS TO THE ARMED SERVICES WHEN THEY ARE ON THE BATTLE FIELD. And that is what he wants . Seeing he has never put his life in the line of fire saying I WILL DEFEND MY COUNTRY WITH MY LIFE. THAT IS WHAT AMERICAN PATRIOT IS . He wants to give the hard working AMERICANS MONEY TO THOSE THAT WANT TO SAY I JUST CANT DO IT. BLACK OR WHITE . WE ALL WORK HARD AND WE ALL PAY OUR TAXES. ITS NOT RACE ITS HOW HARD YOU WORK. He see him self as a new JFK. Thats odd Ask not what your country can do for you , But what you can do for your country. That means smaller government less pointless programs less taxes. More accountability to the AMERICAN PEOPLE. That is John McCains plan. Less in taxes less in Government spending . MORE POWER TO THE COUNRTY. WAKE UP LOOK WHAT THE CRAP THE ANTI AMERICAN IS SELLING.

    I studied the issues long and hard. I am seventy, have lived in Europe 7 years, seen much of the world, been an officer aboard ship and practiced medicine over 33 years. I think that Obama is different and I believe in him.
