John McCain held a press conference with the Des Moines Register and things aren’t going too well for him.
In his interview with Sarah Palin and Katie Couric the other day, he began to display some of that rumored testiness. Many analyzed his refusal to look at Barack Obama during last Friday’s debate as an angry man unwilling to acknowledge his opponent in the race.
In the Register interview, he looks pissed, he tone is irritated and it is safe to say that he is becoming unraveled. If McCain continues showing this side of his personality, his numbers will be sure to decline further.
Is this a catch-22? As his numbers decline, he gets testy which causes his numbers to decline further – which causes him to get testier.
I think America deserves to see the angry John McCain, the one we were warned about by members of his own party.
