It looks like that famous McCain anger is genetic.
We now know that John McCain is not the only McCain known for his temper. Senator John is notorious in Washington for his temper tantrums. It looks like his younger brother Joe is not much better.
Joe has dropped out of the McCain campaign and apologized for calling 911 about a traffic jam he was stuck in near Arlington, Virginia on October 21.
Joe McCain called the 911 operator and cursed at the operator. Then he hung up and called 911 back after the first operator left a message.
The call came into Alexandria’s 911 system on October 21.
Operator: 911 state your emergency
Caller: It’s not an emergency, but do you know why on one lane…on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way?
Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)
Caller: “(Expletive) you.” (caller hangs up)
The 911 Operator called back and got Joe McCain’s voice mail.
“Hi this is Joe McCain. I can’t take this message now because I’m involved in a very important family political project. I hope on November 4th we have elected John.”
McCain then called 911 back to complain about a message the 911 Operator left him.
Caller: Somebody gave me this riot act about the violation of police.
Operator: Did you just call 911 in reference to this?
Operator: 911 is to be used for emergencies only not just because you’re sitting in traffic.
In his apology on a Washington radio station, Joe McCain said he thought his phone was on mute. McCain said he has not spoken to his brother about the incident but said, “He’s not going to be happy about it, I’m sure.”
And it is a good bet that the 911 Operator is voting Obama too.
