Sen. John McCain Loses Temper On Senate Floor, Reprimands Sen. Max Baucus

During the knock-down-and-drag-out 2008 election we heard all about Sen. John McCains infamous temper. At the time, it was the story of way back 1992 and Charles Grassley: There was some shouting and shoving between them, but no punches, recalls a spectator, who said that Nebraska Democrat Bob Kerrey helped break up the altercation, the Washington Post reported at the time. Today, we caught another glimpse, this time on the Senate floor. And on video!

2. Boy I really don't have a dog in that fight
But it would be fun to watch. Maybe McCain would get so mad he'd actually stroke out and turn purple right there in the senate. It'd be a video worth seeing.

4. The Kerry amendment, which was the Democratic bill to reinstate those benefits

added back money, while not touching some of the oversight that would cut genuine waste. Waste that McCain (as well as Kerry in 2004) identified in his campaign. The difference in the Republican bill was that Kerry's did not send the entire bill back to the Finance committee.

The Republican amendment sent the bill back to the Finance committee - which would have set back the process significantly hoping to end it forever. The Kerry bill passed with 96 votes, including McCain's. The Republican bill failed.
