This isn't late-breaking news, but it's news at least I hadn't heard before. Apparently, the mainstream media has often failed to make much of the story because of the extremely objectionable language involved. Which is exactly why everyone needs to know that, according to a book by Cliff Schecter called "The Real McCain: Why Conservatives Don't Trust Him and Why Independents Shouldn't", McCain called his wife, Cindy, a c--t in front of a group of reporters back in 1992.
The story goes that McCain's wife playfully twirled his hair and said "You're getting a little thin up there," to which McCain replied,
"At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c*nt."
Not everyone's ignoring the story. The incident inspired a video that is currently popular on You Tube called "He Said it First". Here's a version with the c-word censored:
I can't imagine why the press is suddenly too squeamish to report this story since, if memory serves, they gleefully recounted the story of what then president Bill Clinton did to Monica Lewinsky with a cigar on a daily basis at right around that same time.
