McCain is a total hot head and here's the proof!

Is this how a president should act?... Here's what I found when I was advised to google " McCain's Top Ten Blowouts" :

As former GOP Senator Rick Santorum put it, "Everybody has a McCain story." Over his tenure in Congress, McCain has had angry, expletive-laced exchanges with a number of his colleagues and peers,- both Democrat and Republican alike- many of which have been covered extensively by local Arizona and nationwide news sources. Below are the ten most notable among them.

[Video] Losing It: McCain Camp Goes Ballistic, Blames Obama For Crash

Moments after the Dow Jones largest single-day point drop ever, the McCain campaign went on the warpath, blaming Barack Obama for the crash of the bailout plan.

Appearing on MSNBC, McCain economic adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin said that Obama had "failed the American people."

MSNBC's David Shuster did an admirable job of forcing Holtz-Eakin to defend his absurd statement, a feat the McCain aide was unable to accomplish.

Palin's troubles mount for McCain in White House

Mocked by comedians, derided by prominent conservatives and reeling from flustered interviews with national media, Sarah Palin is proving a risky gamble in Republican John McCain's quest for the White House.

"Palin is Ready? Please" a headline in Newsweek said this week of the moose-hunting Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, capping a turbulent week in which Palin's fitness for the job came under growing scrutiny.

"Sarah Palin is utterly unqualified to be vice president," Newsweek International Editor Fareed Zakaria wrote.

IF YOU WERE THINKING about popping along to your local computer superstore to pick up a copy of Adobe's Creative Suite 4 Master Collection on its release date of November 14th, you might just want to reconsider.

Because Adobe's insane pricing policy means that it would be cheaper to fly from London to New York, grab a copy of the software, spend the night in a hotel, and fly back to London the next day!

Calls For New EU Financial Order Increase As Total Meltdown Becomes Likely

Steve Watson
Monday, Sept 29, 2008

With major European banks now failing, calls have increased for an entire restructuring of the financial system under a centralized EU supervisory body.

With Belgian-Dutch group Fortis becoming the first major European bank to buckle, British mortgage lender Bradford & Bingley also being nationalized, as well as several other banks failing in Iceland, Denmark and Germany, economists have warned that more are teetering on the brink and only a radical centralization of power in Europe can stave off financial ruin.

Belarus elections labelled corrupt as Lukashenko backers win all seats

Hmmm...Belarus just doesn't seem to want to have its very own color-coded revolution just like the Ukraine, Lebannon, Georgia, etc...

Well, there is always Pakistan.
