McCain's Bro Trafficks In 911

10/24/2008 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

On Tuesday, John McCain's younger brother, Joe McCain, called 911 -- not to save his brother's presidential campaign -- but to get an I-95 traffic update.
Joe McCain
According to WJLA, when the 911 operator questioned Joe's misuse of the emergency only service, the 66-year-old barked "F*** you" and hung up. The annoyed operator called back the number that placed the call and got Joe's voice mail, which included an endorsement to elect his brother.

No word on what caused the highway congestion.

UPDATE: Brother Joe called into a local radio station, WTOP, to apologize for the whole thing. Click to listen.

What a mook! F*** him and his brother! My tax dollars shouldn't be used to get people like him out of traffic. He knows better and is clearly one of those people who thinks the rules don't apply to his rich butt.

Typical!    

Sounds like McCain's brother has been hanging out with Palin's husband too much. RELATIVES OF CANDIDATES DO NOT GET SPECIAL TREATMENT.

It's nice to hear how the real McCain family treats a regular hard working "Joe the Plumber/ Joe Six Pack." THIS FAMILY IS FULL OF A BUNCH OF OLD GRUMPS. INCLUDING THE WRINKLE OLD MOTHER.

Another small example of the attitude of entitlement, hypocrisy and the good ole boy network. It's OK for Caribou Barbie to spend $150k for a 3 month wardrobe, but not the "average hockey mom." It's OK for McCain's wife to be a drug addict, but not you and me. It's OK for McCain to suspend his campaign to "rescue the country from an financial disaster (NOT)" but it's not OK for Obama to take a few days to spend with the elderly woman who raised him? Come on, even the densest among us can see this for what it is.

It has become so damn obvious that AOL - TMZ is so far to the left that, they have their nose up Obamie's ass! I am done with all of this nonsense. Your cheap shots as well as your digging to come up with anything on republicans is a disgrace. So, after the election I will check back. Until then, f!cking adios!
