What's there to say? Look at his "staff" misfits that blog for Kos, big whoop. That alone speaks volumes about "the editor".

It is a good post. Many folks feel this way -

"In this war alone, thousands of troops have lost limbs, been paralyzed, and been burned beyond recognition. So to see McCain resort to playing the POW card when answering legitimate questions, in my mind, cheapens that experience. And by cheapening his own experience in war, he degrades all of our experiences in war. He turns the horrific incidents we've all seen, touched, smelled, and felt into a lame excuse to earn political points. And it dishonors us all."

For anything worthwhile there are always a few square pegs that won't fit into round holes.

I almost picked out this very paragraph to post here! It hit home with me.

I just can't worship McCain for his war record.....he does it enough himself.

I always had a funny feeling hearing about how he was tortured....he just doesn't seem to be ..."right" for someone who has gone through that....maybe he's too right. ....too calm with unexpressed rage close to the surface...????
