I think I know something about the sacrifices made for teeth, the bleeding gums, the sore jaw, the flossing that took a half hour. So yes, maybe the Viet Cong didn't torture me, but my orthodontist did. AND WITH A SMILE!
But more seriously folks. The faux, semi-faux, and real outrage over the Kos posting about McCain's teeth mostly miss the point. What Kos wrote by way of introduction to the photo of the website is this:

The point is not making fun of McCain OR his teeth. Kos is making fun of McCain's website team, and their apparent inability to make their candidate look good. The medium is the message, remember? So if you want to criticize Kos for something, criticize him for helping McCain out by providing a helpful suggestion that his team might just actually follow. I mean, HULLO, don't we want McCain to look creepy on his own website?
