  •  McCain's record as a former POW (0+ / 0-)

    has been used and over-used to offset a multitude of character defects.  We elevate our war heroes, as we should.  Heroes are courageous.  Heroes are honorable.  Thus, McCain must be these things.  The Republican Party has gone so far off the rails that McCain was credited with an act of courage merely for stating that, well, perhaps Obama is not an Arab.  See?  McCain really is the courageous hero we expect him to be.  Deep down, he's honorable, after all.  Nevermind we have to overlook a few of his foibles.

    Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
