These fits of temper aren't new -- it's just that they're being reported in detail for the first time. And it's lucky for the former President that they weren't discussed earlier in his political career; his complete absence of self-control at some points raise serious questions about his temperament and his fitness to have a finger on the button.
When the MSM raises questions about McCain's temper, it strikes me as perfectly fair to ask them why such inquiries weren't made in 1992 and 1996.
