Even-Keeled McCain Foils Left's Classy Questioner

Well, everyone's talking about the "Baptist minister's" very un-Baptist question for McCain today.

As Matt pointed out, the man who asked McCain if he called his wife an unmentionable word was not just a Baptist minister,
but a former Biden staffer and a current Obama supporter.

He's also, apparently, a Huffington Post contributor:
Parrish signed in as a Huffington Post contributor and was taking pictures at the town hall meeting.
Huffington Post is conveniently leaving that fact out of its write-up on l'affaire chatte, even though it excerpts other parts from the article linked above. I feel this coming to a Policing the 'Net segment near you.

Cliff Schecter, author of "The Real McCain" blogging at Firedoglake, calls the questioner "audacious," and celebrates it as an "everyday person taking democracy into their own hands." "The Real McCain" is the anti-McCain book that claims to have broken a story about McCain once calling his wife an expletive in front of press, which the McCain campaign calls a fabrication and "trash journalism."

Parrish reportedly asked the question because he's concerned about McCain's temper. If his intent was to reveal something about the candidate's temperament, he did just that. Much like the rest of the expletive-riddled, execrable ranting of the loony Left in the blogosphere, his behavior was ultimately self-defeating. He managed to make McCain look cool as a cucumber in a testy situation and make himself, his organization, his candidate, and the very premise of his question look ridiculous by contrast.

Here's McCain's response to the question, for which he is applauded:
McCain: Now, now. You don't want to... Um, you know that's the great thing about town hall meetings, sir, but we really don't, there's people here who don't respect that kind of language. So I'll move on to the next questioner in the back.
Well done, Mr. Parrish! Look at that temper roar!
