On vacation with John McCain....

Have no idea if this story of a vacationer coping with a week's worth of McPOW up close is true or not, but it seems to fit the profile:
I commented on the tragic consequences of the nuclear attacks on Japan during WWII -- but no, he was not to be dissuaded. He went on to say that if it was up to him he would have dropped many more nuclear bombs on Japan. I rapidly extricated myself from this conversation as I could tell that his experience being tortured as a POW didn't seem to have mellowed out his perspective, but rather had made him more aggressive and vengeful towards the world. My final encounter with McCain was on the morning that he was leaving Turtle Island.

Amy and I were happily eating pancakes when McCain arrived and told Amy that she shouldn't be having pancakes because she needed to lose weight. Amy burst into tears at this abusive comment. I felt fiercely protective of Amy and immediately turned to McCain and told him to leave her alone.

He became very angry and abusive towards me, and said, "Don't you know who I am." I looked him in the face and said, "Yes, you are the biggest asshole I have ever met" and headed back to my cabin.

I am happy to say that later that day when I arrived at lunch I was given a standing ovation by all the guests for having stood up to McCain's bullying.
Even Snopes is unsure if this is real. Will keep you posted.

I have taken to calling McCain the Old Scold. He sounds like a preacher, or a scolding parent.

I'm beginning to dislike his voice, the fake way he softens it while he lies and lies and lies. Without shame. He says whatever he wants and can turn around on a dime, say the opposite and claim he didn't.

He is an old scold.
