I received this essay by email last night and, being the responsible blogger that I am, did a little Googling on its likely veracity before posting. While here is no way to really know if this is true or not, it fits a familiar pattern we’ve been hearing about for some time about John McCain’s temper and his attitude towards women. This was originally written by Ana Dubey and later made public by Mary-Kay Gamel, who is often erroneously identified as the author.
My Holiday With John McCain
It was just before John McCain’s last run at the presidential nomination in 2000 that my husband and I vacationed in Turtle Island in Fiji with John McCain, Cindy, and their children, including Bridget (their adopted Bangladeshi child). It was not our intention, but it was our misfortune, to be in close quarters with John McCain for almost a week, since Turtle Island has a small number of bungalows and their focus on communal meals force all vacationers who are there at the same time to get to know each other intimately.
