Sen. John McCain doesn’t use email, so he’s in a strong position to start ripping on Hillary Clinton’s new email troubles. But exactly why McCain doesn’t dig instantaneous communication makes it sound like he’s seen some pretty angry drunk texting in his day. A man has got to know his limitations, said Dirty Harry. McCain agrees. The Arizona senator displays great self-awareness in describing why he leaves email alone.
“I don’t email at all,” McCain reveals in a National Journal article. “I have other people and I tell them to email because I am just always worried I might say something. I am not the most calm and reserved person you know? I am afraid I might email something that in retrospect I wish I hadn’t.” It’s a classic description of the drunk texter’s remorse, and McCain doesn’t even need the cocktails to spur him on.
