But now the video is out....
Audience member: Is it true that you called your wife a cunt?
McCain: Now, now. You don't want to...Um, you know that's the great thing about town hall meetings, sir, but we really don't, there's people here who don't respect that kind of language. So I'll move on to the next questioner in the back.
How interesting that McCain dismisses this question because of the "offensive language." THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT!!! People KNOW that 'cunt' is a very offensive word -- that's why someone is asking WHY you would use it to refer to your wife?
Crazy weird how McCain never said, "I wouldn't use that word to talk about my wife." He's more offended that someone said the word 'cunt' in his presence than the idea that he may have said it to his wife... Lovely.
And as a Shakesville blogger pointed out-- it's all the more hypocritical from McCain considering the little chuckle he had when a supporter of his called Hillary Clinton a bitch.
