Buchanan on MSNBC talking about "hot-headed" McCain. .
They viewed the clip that's been around this week with the exchange between a reporter & McCain about the "VP call" between him & Kerry. . . He got pretty snippy with her, but Buchanan (&the other repug talker) said "That's Nothing!..You should see him when he gets like Vesuvius ask Cornyn about it (chuckle, chuckle)

There is fodder here. He needs to blow his top on camera, JUST ONCE and it's all over for him. We already know that there are military men who don't like the idea of this guy's finger on the trigger.

1. Maybe I can see ol' Pat and McCain not being pals. They don't strike me
as the sort of personalities that would gravitate toward each other.

It's likely good our our side if a well-spoken nutcase like Pat opposes the party's nominee as we move toward November.

2. He's not likely to oppose McCain publicly. What we need is for
someone to needle this guy (maybe about Cindy's theft & drug use) enough to get him to really pop off. I understand that his explosions are unnerving..

3. I can see going easy on Cindy. If I were married to John McCain, I'd be
lying in a gutter with three dozen needles in my veins, no question.

McCain -- and this is a non-partisan observation -- does not look especially healthy. Not to put too fine a point on it, I'm not sure the stamina is there for a many-month campaign.

Politically, he's appalling in the first place, but I really think his physician needs to sit the man down for a little chat.

7. He's likely to give the doctor some shit, since he didn't completely cure him. Of course, I wouldn't
want to piss off a person that carries a scalpel to work, but when McCain realizes that he won't be President because of health reasons, he's bound to fly off the handle. Curse the doctor, or God?

8. If McCain still has any energy left at all, he'll likely curse both.
This guy is really not going to be a big hit for the GOP.

Which is fine with me. I'd like to see us whip McCain and also pick up a score of Senate seats in the bargain.

10. Yes. He does have that half-dead affect that doomed Bob Dole.

11. I'm waiting for McCain to fall off a stage somewhere, and remove all doubt about his condition.

12. -- you know, it might come to that. I don't want the man hurt physically
but I'd love to see him sliced to bits politically.

Maybe he should choose Gary Bauer for a running mate and they could kamikaze off stages together coast to coast.

16. While Bauer's making pancakes for breakfast, McCain was makin' bacon, with a lobbyist.

17. McCain seems to have a lobby hobby from way back when, doesn't he.
I guess if you want to be a disgraced co-author of McCain-Feingold you might as well go whole-hog in your corruption and betrayal.

McCain's in bed with lobbyists in all respects.

4. He'll come uncorked before the GE, count on it.
McCain can go just so long without losing his temper.

Difference now is every word he speaks until Nov. 4th will be recorded by someone.

Maybe someone could start a betting pool on when the big day will come.

13. Can you imagine his response when eventually someone is going
to bring up the "Keating Five." I wouldn't want to be close to him on that one...but, it will happen...Some brave, young, unknowing journalist will have the temerity to ask the question...Ooooh popcorn..
