McCain Called His Wife C-Word

No you silly hobos, it wasn’t “runt”! We all know how angry John “McNasty” McCain is, and since he only married Cougar Cindy for her beer money and firm bum bum, they would obviously have a dysfunctional relationship. According to Cliff Schecter’s new book, The Real McCain, this one time in 1992, he went all “Hanoi” on her and called her a cunt. That is what he called her.

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.

That strumpet, always being playful about his age! But yeah for real he can’t be president.

    So, does saying “cunt” in the Map Room bring more Dignity to the White House than getting an under-the-table hummer?
    They didn’t cover this part in my fifth-grade Civics class.

    I have to question the man’s integrity. Even more, I have to question the man’s common sense. I would as soon blaspheme the Holy Spirit as call a woman a c_ _t . One dooms you to eternal hell…the other one makes hell feel like a step up.

    Is that for real?? He really called her a cunt? wow.. That’s disgusting.

    I mean, I’ve said the word a million times, but I’m not espousing such wacky ‘moralistic’ points of view as the GOP, and have no front to keep up. The hypocrisy is what is disgusting me, not the c word.

    ‘Cunt’ actually comes from old English paganism, and is a derivative of the word “Kennet”, which is the name of a river sacred to the pre-Christian Goddess, that runs close to Silbury Hill, a major ‘Goddess’ site in England. So, in those terms, to be called a cunt is a high honour. ;-)
