Swiftboat query: Did so-called war hero mc cain really deserve his purple heart?
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 08:59 AM by Philosoraptor
And isn't he really just exploiting his military service for all it's political worth?

Does he even have a purple heart, or is it just a purple band-aid?

I thought heroes saved people.

6. There's no doubt that McCain was wounded in the line of duty
And isn't that the criteria for a purple heart?

And yes, I do think he is exploiting his military service for political reasons.
