Don't know if this has been diaried, but I just read this via an email from Robert Greenwald.
McCain hit a woman. She was the niece of a MIA Veteran from Vietnam.
Does anyone in the Republican Party know what the word "vetting" means?
I am shocked and dismayed at this.
Last week, I wrote a part to IGTNT: Finally Home about a Vietnam pilot who had been MIA for 41 years. His remains were finally found and sent home 41 years to the day from when he was killed. His widow never remarried, here is why:
"My reason was that I knew I would never find anyone as good as he was to me. I could never find anyone to take his place," she said.
Three people sent their POW/MIA bracelets to this widow. They still remembered and waited for him to return. Of all people who deserve the support from John McCain, it would be the families of the POW/MIA. So, I am having a hard time understanding how John McCain, a POW, could lose his temper with one of the family members of a soldier Missing in Action.
It is bad enough to hit a woman, but it is unforgivable to hit a woman wanting to talk to a United States Representative about her uncle who served in the military. There is no excuse for this. I am at a loss for any more words.
