Okay, usually when articles clock in the thousands of words, I...start skimming? That did not happen with this exclusive interview with John McCain's Navy son Jack. Scout.com sat down this week with the hopeful first son, and talked about everything from girls to demerits. Here are some choice comparisons Jack made between father and son:
My dad told me there is one thing McCain’s are good at and that is not giving into pressure, and honor – keeping our honor regardless of what happens. He then said, ‘Don’t lie, cheat or steal – anything else is fair game.
I enjoy [campaigning] very much. But [my dad] keeps a schedule – I mean I’m 21 and go to the Naval Academy and he outruns me with no problem.
And what of that fabled McCain temper?
Growing up, if I screwed up, I’d know it. He was never cruel about anything. He never got overly angry. He was always level-headed. It cracks me up when I hear about this [alleged] crazy temper because I’ve lived with him for almost 22 years and I’ve never seen it.
I suppose the argument could be made that hot subject matter = prolonged attention span, but I'll let you be the judge of that.
