36. First words out of Cenk's mouh and he nails it:: Two different issues.
(By the way, it wasn't necessary for the CNN guy to ID Beaver Cleaver there as a 'conservative' radio talk show host -- that was painfully obvious. And Beaver called Cenk "Sink".)

And, Barack, Clark DIDN'T discount McCain's service or sacrifice -- did you LISTEN to him, or just get the soundbites?

Speaking of soundbites, the clip they ran at the beginning of the segment was edited. It was Bob Schieffer who used the term getting shot down over Viet Nam, and Clark was just saying that (getting shot down over VN) didn't necessarily qualify a person to be President.

And again, Cenk made note that McCain's military history and his service on the Committee in DC are TWO DIFFERENT ISSUES. They problem is everyone wants to wrap these separate issues into one package.

Nobody is going to listen to Cenk's excellent comments because this is an emotional issue (which it shouldn't be!). I'm so sorry Clark said it that way, because nobody will ever hear the real meaning and truth behind it.

And I'm pissed at Obama for his comments regarding this (hadn't seen that clip before). He could have handled it better.

Fact is, and we've learned, we have to not address the fact that McCain's POW experience can't become a topic of debate - we've seen what happens. Rightly or wrongly, it can hurt us. And that pisses me off.
