WASHINGTON, D.C.--Looks like John McCain has had enough.

Protesters heckled former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger at a senate hearing.

"Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes," the protestors chanted.

McCain called for capitol police, but had to get a few words in, first.

"Get outta here, you low-life scum," he said.

Of course, most of us come up with great lines a few minutes *after* we need 'em.

How 'bout these examples?

When President Obama said, "I have no more campaigns to run," some members of congress applauded.

What he said in response was, "I know 'cause I won both of 'em."
What he shoulda said: "Get outta here, you low-life scum."

What New England coach Bill Belichick said about Deflategate: "I've covered everything that I can cover."
What he wishes he said: "Get outta here, you low-life scum."

How about New Jersey governor Chris Christie, when a protestor interrupted a speech?

"Sit down and shut up."

Okay, maybe the gov did just fine on his own.

Of course, McCain might have been holding back a bit. Maybe he was thinking:

"Oh, a wise guy, eh?" from The Three Stooges.

"Ya fruit loop dingus," from Big Brother.

But this one from "Home Alone 2" is probably more like it: "I'm gonna give ya 'til the count of three to get your lousy, lyin', low-down four-flushin' carcus out my door!"

Hmmm. Maybe we don't wanna get him that worked up.
