There’s a lot of pushback against this Washington Post story on McCain’s temperament. I’ve heard plenty of McNasty horror stories from people I trust, but the alleged Young Republican incident is certainly different from my own experience. I was one of two College Republicans to pick up McCain from the airport and basically shuttle him around when he came to deliver the commencement address at my school in 1997. He was very pleasant, even when I got into an argument with him about immigration, and good humored. My only exposure to him since then has been blogger conference calls and press availabilities, but I thought he was one of the nicer politicians with whom I interacted as a starry-eyed Republican lad. I write this as someone who is not particularly a fan of McCain’s politics.
