On Senator Oldy McSnake and his 'character'

Yet another reason on the long list of why I hate John McCain. In a story from the UK paper The Daily Mail, the truth of McCain's shabby treatment of his first wife Carol, who was seriously injured in an automobile accident while McCain was in Vietnam. The story details his philandering while his wife fought for her life. Also in the article are reports from people he knew 20 years ago, and commentary from Ross Perot (who paid Carol's medical bills after her accident)about McCain's "character."

But Ross Perot, who paid her medical bills all those years ago, now believes that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel – even by the standards of modern politics.

‘McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching for attention and glory,’ he said.

‘After he came home, Carol walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona. And the rest is history.’

To be honest McCain's behavior reminds me of someone...

Good grief, Hope, when I clicked on that link I expected I'd be reading about Newt Gingrich or maybe Rudy Giuliani. I was out of Internet range much of that time, so I missed that article the first time. I hope that I haven't written anything insensitive ...

Anyhow, it did solve the mystery of who the hot babe in the picture was.

Not sure what to make of McCain's first marriage, other than that he should have at least waited until he was divorced before he started "carousing" again. One thing I've learned over the years is that I have absolutely no idea what's going on between many couples. He certainly does sound like a jerk, though.

If one were naive, it would be tempting to hope that this would mean that we won't be hearing much about "character" during this campaign. Sadly, there's absolutely no chance that will happen.

Love the tags, love the cobra. Cindy must really really really want to be first lady - she has all the money but apparently puts up with all kind of shit from Johnny-boy.
