McCain: ‘I call people jerks all the time… it’s supposed to be fun’

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/02/21/mccain-i-call-people-jerks-all-the-time-its-supposed-to-be-fun/


Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday refused to apologized for calling a constituent a jerk, saying that he used the insult “all the time” and “it’s supposed to be fun.”

At a town hall event earlier in the week, the Arizona Republican had become frustrated after the crowd heckled him for opposing the mass deportation of undocumented immigrants.

“Occasionally, I get a jerk like you,” McCain told one constituent who argued that money spent on border security wasn’t helping to build a fence to keep immigrants out.

“Oh, that’s not a fence? It’s a banana,” McCain snapped at the man. “We’re putting up a banana with about $600 million of appropriations we have.”

much, much more

11. No doubt

Give him a padded cell, or at the very least kick him out of the Senate. He seems to be getting worse and worse.

10. Clearly his time as a POW took a toll

and as a Viet Nam era person, who lost a fiance there, I don't say it lightly, but he is clearly not right in the head and hasn't been since then. He would never have been elected had he not been a POW and gotten the sympathy vote - and then people just forgot that he's just plain nuts and needed therapy a long time ago.

12. I think people

who want mass deportations are "jerks", too.

McCain was right on this one.
