Hot on the heels of Wesley Clark saying about John McCain, “I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president” (it isn’t a disqualification either), we have Democrat strategist and attorney (today’s redundancy is sponsored by Valvoline) John Aravosis writing the following about McCain:
Yes, we all know that John McCain was captured and tortured in Vietnam (McCain won’t let you forget). A lot of people don’t know, however, that McCain made a propaganda video for the enemy while he was in captivity. Putting that bit of disloyalty aside, what exactly is McCain’s military experience that prepares him for being commander in chief?
McCain made a “propaganda video” for the enemy because if he didn’t he’d have been tortured until he was dead, which he almost was anyway. He also had his teeth broken off, which is about the same feeling I get when reading anything John Aravosis writes. I think this bonehead has McCain confused with Jane Fonda.
This brings us to the big difference between Republicans and Democrats, at least the ones in Congress. The difference between John McCain and, say, Harry Reid or John Murtha, is that John McCain had to be tortured to get him to spout enemy propaganda. Reid and Murtha do it for a living.
