    So I can't really say much about McCain's service to the nation.  

    Who deserves more respect--a tortured life from a past war, or 3000+ lives lost over Iraq?  Probably a false dichotomy--respect means looking twice.  But will McCain "look twice" at the past 8 years?  

    The question is not whether or not we should respect McCain--that is a given.  It is whether or not McCain respects us!

    •  Agree, I respect his prior service, but it (0+ / 0-)

      doesn't give him a free pass for screwing up now.
      I'll buy him a beer for what he went through in Nam, but he pays for the rest of the rounds for being a Bushco puppet now. (Lucky for him i don't drink much anymore)

      •  likely--here's my free association on free pass (0+ / 0-)

        freedom ain't free
        a screwup is free to pass
        pass a screwup and you aren't free
        pass by all logic
        pass through all reason
        free yourself from reason
        free yourself from logic
        use logic to reason yourself out of freedom
        use freedom to reason yourself out of logic
        puppets aren't free
        but puppets speaking freedom like to say
        "freedom ain't free"
        So there goes the free in their pursuit of freedom
        Pursuit of happiness
        Hunt your happiness
        Shoot it (Eddie Izzard)
        Kill freedom
        And announce yourself free
        Even though you are a screwup.
