Unhinged with your finger on the button is never a good thing.

Let’s not forget that John McCain isn’t just dumb and/or slightly nuts, he’s kind of an asshole, too.
McCain, who supported amnesty for illegals, accused his colleague of making a “chickensh**” argument to try to sink the bill. “F*** you!” McCain shouted at Cornyn during the negotiations. “I know more about this than anyone else in the room.”
Wow. Really??? I could see this in the locker room at the GOP fitness center/Larry Craig bathhouse, but in a commitee room in the U.S. Senate? This is the kind of thing that I scream at my brother-in-law when we’re both drunk and in private and it’s like 3 in the morning. In broad daylight, sober, in the halls of Congress isn’t the place for this kind of behavior. Can you imagine John McCain’s 3 a.m. phone call?
Watch room: Mr. President, the Afghani government is giving us 48 hours to have all of our troops out of their country or they are going to the U.N.
McCain: F*** those chickens*** bastards!!! Let’s see what they think of the business end of our f***ing nukes!
As Bill Maher put it best (via Crooks and Liars):
I look at [McCain] and see a walking Tom Clancy action figure who is going to get us all killed.
And this is a legitimate candidate for the presidency?
