    while in prison, McCain disclosed military secrets to the Viet Cong.  I have a hard time when some people say that he is a military hero...He's not.

      If he had any class he would have immediately congratulated Obama when he lost the election in '08 and then he would have gracefully fallen back into his duties as a senator. I do not have any problems with Repub/Bagger congressfolk expressing opposing opinions. But for one of them to still, since '08 for Chrissake, be rolling on the floor pitching his obnoxious temper tantrums because he is such a sore loser, is beyond the pale. It's no damn wonder he's on so many of the ersatz Sunday morning shows - I would guess that he has his people calling them and begging them every single week to let Johnny be on TV again. Jeez!

      which no one has answerd (because they can't):

      What exactly did McCain did to make him a war hero?  Be captured and held prisoner?  What about the hundreds of other Americans who were captured and held prisoner by North Vietnam?  What were they, reality show contestants?

      Let me state for the one thousandant time, McCain WAS NOT the only American POW held captive. McCain and his apologist, the republicans and what passes for media continuing to parrott the “HE was a POW hero” meme does not make it so.

    •  As near as I've been able to ascertain, he was (0+ / 0-)

      just a bad pilot, who wouldn't have been allowed to fly jets off a carrier had his dad not been an Admiral. And had he not gotten special treatment because of Daddy, he wouldn't have been in a position to get shot down, wouldn't have been labeled a "hero", wouldn't have ever gotten elected to public office (since "war hero" was his only qualification for office), and wouldn't have been instrumental in the foisting of Sarah Palin on America as a whole.

      Republicans - A pathology, not a party.
