1. This is a very dumb direction to take

Most decent people understand that extraordinary circumstances come with allowances.

I think this sort of thing is deeply stupid. When you've spent years in a prison camp, then you can talk. Until then, you look petty and desperate.

7. +1

I got a lot of things I dislike this guy for, but I'm not going to judge what happened to him when his bones were being broken on a regular basis, and he was alone in a room for years at a time.

There are certain things for which you just deserve respect and the benefit of the doubt. What happens under torture in defense of the country qualifies.

No good will come from trashing a war vet. Or being perceived as doing so.

2. torture is a valid excuse for singing, but being called a hero

is genetic favor, his pappy and grandpappy were military elite. McCain on his own merits, could not be dogcatcher

3. People will say anything during torture.

I'm not a fan of McCain in the least, but this is just too rough.

6. Its not too rough. His info killed fellow servicemen.

He should have martyred himself & been a real "hero".

More repugnant, is his flip-flop on torture. First he was against it, then and now he's for it.
He's no songbird, he's a pig at the trough.

4. What is at issue is that McCain has always claimed

he never gave information while a prisoner. It's the hypocrisy on his part. And it's the willing ignorance on the part of those who have instead called him a hero. I believe that his fellow prisoners would have nothing to do with him after they were returned, although they did not go as public as they could have about his co-operation with the North Vietnamese.

Oh, and those same fellow prisoners have said McCain was not tortured to the extent that he claimed he was.

5. It's why he is called "lyin john" by people who know him best.

I keep watching him on the tv, hoping that thing on his neck will blow. This sonofabitch tried to sell us sara, in case you forgot.
