“McCain Shoved Wheelchair Woman,” Say Six Sources

John McCain’s temper has become the stuff of legends. Who could forget the time the Republican presidential nominee allegedly called his wife a “cunt”? Classic!

Well, Senator McCain’s short fuse got some more press this weekend after six witnesses confirm that in 1996, while meeting with POW advocates, McCain pushed a woman in a wheel chair:

According to the accounts, McCain waved his hand to shoo away Jeannette Jenkins, whose cousin was last seen in South Vietnam in 1970, causing her to hit a wall.

As McCain continued walking, Jane Duke Gaylor, the mother of another missing serviceman, approached the senator. Gaylor, in a wheelchair equipped with portable oxygen, stretched her arms toward McCain.

“McCain stopped, glared at her, raised his left arm ready to strike her, composed himself and pushed the wheelchair away from him,” according to Eleanor Apodaca, the sister of an Air Force captain missing since 1967.

    McCain is a psycho.

    Not fit to be President.

    McCain has issues with the handicapped. He left his first wife after she was handicapped in a car accident. I wonder how long it will be before he drop kicks Palin’s baby.

    Sadly, none of this does any good, without some compelling video of the event. The mainstream media have found their comfy place back in the warm, wrinkly lap of grampa mcC, and now that he’s added Annie Oakley to the ticket, the MSM is about as wet as they can get. There will, in short, be little or no criticism of the mccain-palin ticket, and a great deal of eyebrow raising over how Obama-Biden can ever, ever, possibly overcome this media-christened juggernaut of fabulousity. Unless someone’s got nice clear video of mccain thwacking the wheelchair lady, or palin biting the heads off chickens, AND someone really rubs the MSM’s noses in it, it’ll go under the rug with the rest of the unpleasant truths about the repubs.

    All it takes, apparently, is a little bbq sauce, and the MSM is yours.

    EMB – MSM also denotes Men who have Sex with Men (Gay doesn’t get CDC funding) so not sure if the latter will take hold (so txt mssgy) There us nothing Mainstream about our Media. Try Corporate Media!

    On our Presidential Doom:

    It seems that we are replacing an Intellectual Indigent with and an Incontinent Incubus…

    McCain/Palin (….for the Lobbying Circuit instead) or we can kiss Social Security’s Medicare and Medicaid Goodbye!
