The article discusses criticism against Republican presidential candidate John McCain. He claimed that he has already controlled his temper which he became famous for. Despite his 2001 claim of cool-headedness, McCain's penchant for pugnacity still gets the best of him on occasion such as when he opposed the tax cuts of President Bush. Political scientist John Green asserted that McCain is seen by conservative Christians as someone unreliable and inconsistent.
