It was another instance of the Republican presidential candidate losing his temper, another instance where, as POW-MIA activist Carol Hrdlicka put it, "It's his way or no way."
There's a lengthy list of similar outbursts through the years: McCain pushing a woman in a wheelchair, trying to get an Arizona Republican aide fired from three different jobs, berating a young GOP activist on the night of his own 1986 Senate election and many more.
Folks, we are talking about the keys to the nuclear weapons here. Yes, there is the two man rule, but if one man is "hair trigger" McCain and the second is "Mission from God" Palin, (who seems to also have poor impulse control) we might have a problem with setting off a nuclear war.
