    McCain's pathetic military experiences, including such things as his collusion with the enemy during his pow years, yours will not receive many recs or comments. I've tried to reason why Obama, Biden, and many others continue to perpetuate the myth that John McCain is an honorable man and an American hero in front of irrefutable evidence to the contrary.
     The best I can come up with is that they believe attacking the myth will leave them vulnerable to accusations of hatefulness, or, they actually believe the lie.
      As for as the people here on KOS, I believe there are a lot who understand the facts of his "service" and  who John McCain really is.
      There will probably never be any more justice meted out to John McCain other than the drumming he will receive in this election.

      occams hatchet's diary based on the LA Times article about McCain's many plane crashes did well and went on the rec list. People just don't respond well to my diaries, maybe because I'm not a good writer. Anyway, the main thing I wanted to point out to everyone was the fact that McCain deserted his post during a time of crisis, and now he's lying to build himself up about what really occurred all those years ago. I hope people read the article at the end of the diary. There's way more in there than I had time to write about, plus they explained it better than I ever could.

      John McCain spends $150,000 of his campaign's funds on his V.P.'s clothes, and $22,800 for her makeup because he's such a Fiscal conservative

        put yourself down. We all do what we can and there are a lot of different factors that go into making the rec list. There are those who have instant name recognition because they have been here forever for instance. Also the "hot" topic of the day can let a good diary go unnoticed and some of it is just dumb luck. Plus I have seen tons of diaries where the comments have practically nothing to do with the content of the diary. Glad to have you here.
