Sources close to John McCain were impressed by his gracious concession speech and gentlemanly return to the Senate after his profound thrashing by Obama-Biden. The tranquility and civility apparently became an impossibility when he learned that Palin would probably win Felon Stevens Alaska seat in the US Senate.
Sources wishing to remain anonymous reported that McCain uttered an almost endless string of expletives that made Nixon's language on the Watergate tapes sound like the script for Pollyanna. He then proceeded to break everything in his office over his own head. Next he danced an ecstatic jig, pulled down his pants and mooned the District of Columbia and probably the whole world for a good ten minutes.
Then when the phone rang and his secretary told him that Sarah Palin was on the line, McCain told him to tell her that he had gone to the country of Africa to discuss NAFTA with the Pygmies, Zulus and the Ubangis and wouldn't be back till you could see Russia from Sedona, Arizona.
