McCain's Mean Streak: He Only Pushed One Woman in a Wheelchair

What's the big deal? It was only one.

On Sunday, McClatchy chronicled some of John McCain's most notorioustemper tantrums:

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.


McCain observers say the incidents have been blown out of proportion.
Yeah, a senator pushes just one woman in a wheelchair and suddenly it's a big deal.
