John McCain flashes temper by repeatedly cutting off a reporter who asked him about Sen. Kerry

NEW ORLEANS - Republican Sen. John McCain, showing a flash of the temper he is known for, repeatedly cut off a reporter Friday when asked whether he had spoken to Democratic Sen. John Kerry about being his vice president in 2004. "Everybody knows that I had a private conversation. Everybody knows that, that I had a conversation," McCain told the reporter. "And you know it, too. No. You know it, too. No. You do know. You do know."

The reporter, Elisabeth Bumiller of The New York Times, was following up on a question McCain had answered at a campaign event Friday morning in Atlanta. Asked if he might consider Kerry as a running mate, since Kerry asked him in 2004, McCain said no.

Afterward, on a campaign flight, Bumiller said she looked in the Times' archives and that McCain had denied talking with Kerry in a May 2004 story.

1. What surprises me most about this isn't McCain....
But more shockingly what our party has become. Why would Kerry go and court that Neocon-hugging jerk is beyond me. No wonder the Dems don't have any courage or guts to stand up to the Neocons. We are too busy kissing their rear ends.

Gods help us all if something goes horribly wrong (like the Democratic party being further divided) and McPain takes office. We'll be 'at war' (read as 'occupying') with the entire world. And oh hell, if another shrub gets into the WH!!! Aaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!111
