I wonder if John McCain was watching the PBS series on the Vietnam war last night?

They showed John McCain after his capture by North Vietnamese talking to a French journalist. He was laying bed with broken bones and he was crying and telling the journalist to tell his wife he loved her.

Maybe those memories are part of why he is against this bill. He knows what suffering is.

5. Here is one of the replies to the video

 

Billy Dabbs 0:28 I did not know that Kerry served in 'Nam. He should have mentioned it when he was a candidate for President.

6. wow, that is one unobservant person -- unless it is meant as sarcasm, which the RW does do

noting in a very mocking way that JK was in Vietnam as if it was somehow funny.

3. Did McCain talk too much?

When I was in the army,
we were told to only give name, rank, and serial number.
