John McCain's brother's angry 911 call: a short family fuse

  1. Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s brother, Joe McCain, called 911 in Alexandria, Va., to complain about traffic earlier this week. And when they told him that 911 was only for emergencies, he used an expletive to the operator and hung up.

    Operator: Alexandria 911, state your emergency

    Caller: Well, it's not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic's coming the other way across the drawbridge?

    Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)

    Caller: "Fuck you" (caller hangs up)

    The operator called the caller back and received this message: "Hi this is Joe McCain I can't take this message now because I'm involved in a very (inaudible) important political project... I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John."

    The operator then called the number back and left a message for Joe about how it is illegal to use a 911 number for anything other than emergencies.

    Here's the best part: An outraged Joe called the operator back to complain about being read the riot act about calling 911 and got read the riot act again.

    Anyway, it's priceless. Watch the video call and see if you don't think that Joe even sounds a lot like John.
  2. That is why late term abortions should stay legal

    As this over grown fetus has shown, republicons are all prime candidates for late term abortions.

    Joe the Brother makes a total horse's ass of himself!

    Admiral McCain must be spinning like a top in his grave. :p

    I heard the second phone call when Joe McCain called to complain about the message in his voice mail. It was hilarious to listen to a self-important aristocrat complain about being stuck in traffic. He asked the person on the phone, "so what are we supposed to do, sit in traffic until god knows when?" BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Gotta love aristocrats.

    This reminds me of Joe Biden's blowup in front of reporters during his failed presidential bid in the late 80's.

    How come that's not more important since he's running for VP and McCains brother isn't running at all?

    And on the subject of Joe Biden he's also a fucking liar. Good VP choice eh?

    "Biden inaccurately recollected graduating in the "top half" of his class when he actually graduated 76th from 85, ... and had received three degrees in college. In fact, he had earned a single B.A."
  6. Biden attended the University of Delaware in Newark. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in history and political science (double major might be what he meant as 2 degrees) in 1965, ranked 506th of 688 in his class.

    He went on to receive his Juris Doctor from Syracuse University College of Law in 1968,[third degree?] where by his own description he underperformed.[12][13] During his first year there, he was accused of having plagiarized 5 of 15 pages of a law review article. Biden said it was inadvertent due to his not knowing the proper rules of citation, and he was permitted to retake the course after receiving a grade of F, which was subsequently dropped from his record.[13] He was admitted to the Delaware Bar in 1969.[11]
  7. John McCain 's brother made an ass of himself, but he's NOT John McCain.

    Tell that to Jimmy Carter, whose brother Billy's antics (remember Billy Beer?) were a constant source of embarrassment.
  9. The apples DO NOT FALL far from the tree!
  10. =====================

    Generally true, and the older some apples are , the more likely they are to fall.Good thing Gov Palin is a medium age governor.

    And noticed Mr McCain for the past year, careful not to lose his public temper.
