After getting a bit here and there, I floated over to Time and read the interview James Carney and Michael Scherer conducted with John McCain. One can see various . . . highlights . . . elsewhere. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Then ask yourself this question - Is this really the guy we want as our next President?
As an aside, I wouldn't have called the interview "prickly". I might, however, have called McCain "pricky".
