Nasty, Brutish, and Short

NASTY, BRUTISH, AND SHORT....Megan McArdle calls John McCain "an especially brutish adolescent character." That's interesting. My wife, to my surprise, told me the other day that she thinks McCain is "cruel and calculating." Those descriptions are fair, but they aren't the ones that would have occurred to me above all others. I wonder how many other people share this view of McCain?
