Bob Herbert says something that needs to be repeated

As often as possible, in as many venues as possible, because it is a necessary preventative to another Republican disaster for the US.
How much do voters really know about John McCain?
What follows is a litany of McCain Moments that the Barbecue Boys in the media prefer to overlook.
Part of the makeup of the man — apparently a significant part, according to many close observers — is his outsized temper. Mr. McCain’s temperament has long been a subject of fascination in Washington, and for some a matter of concern. He can be a nasty piece of work. (Truly nasty. He once told an extremely cruel joke about Chelsea Clinton — too cruel to repeat here.)

If the McCain gaffes seem endless, so do the tales about his angry, profanity-laced eruptions. Senator Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican, said of Mr. McCain: “The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine.”

Senator Pete Domenici, a New Mexico Republican, told Newsweek in 2000: “I decided I didn’t want this guy anywhere near a trigger.”
The dangers of the Old Fart are easily subsumed among 99 other senators, but when given center stage, as in the White House, stand forth clearly as a recipe for disaster. John McCain is not a man you want to have a beer with, he is a man who will swing a bottle at your head if you don't watch every word you say.
