MCCAIN TALKS TOUGH, and that’s okay:

I want a President who says “f*ck you” and calls things that are chickenshit “chickenshit.” Not where the kids can hear him, of course. But this was a closed meeting and Cornyn was apparently trying to disqualify his opinion because he dares to go off and run for President. McCain was entitled to push back. I say it’s nothing.

On the other hand, it confirms some worries that McCain has too short a fuse.

UPDATE: Reader Dart Montgomery thinks I’m wrong: “The real point – once again, it shows that McCain regards the real enemy as his fellow Republicans.”

I think that this will hurt him more.
