John McCain Throws The C-Word Around

Being the Prez is a stressful job. It might even take a toll on your marriage, as the Clintons have proved. Cindy McCain may want to book a few therapy appointments in advance, since her husband, John McCain, is the Republican nominee. A new book, The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter, says that in 1992 McCain called Cindy “a c*nt” after she jokingly made a comment about his thinning hair.

At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, ‘You’re getting a little thin up there.’ McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, ‘At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.’ McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day.”

Ruh-roh! In fairness, we do think Cindy is a little heavy-handed with the black eyeliner, but lord, calling your wife, any woman for that matter, the c-word is on the short list of words men should be castrated for using. That’s our c-word, by the way. [Feministing]
