FOX REPORTER: Of course there could be a lot of name-calling on the campaign trail. But the candidates aren't the only ones doing the mudslinging. During an event in South Carolina yesterday, Arizona Senator John McCain was asked how he planned on beating his democratic rival Hillary Clinton. And his supporter used a term that rhymes with "rich."

MCCAIN SUPPORTER: How do we beat the bitch?

FOX REPORTER: McCain laughed off the comment and then he tried to change the subject.
The McCain campaign has declined to comment on the incident.

UPDATE: In an extended video of the incident, McCain is heard to respond: "That's an excellent question." What a charmer!
