Is there a skeleton in John McCain's POW closet?

Is there a skeleton in John McCain's POW closet?

The Rolling Stone has an article called "Make-Believe Maverick"

Things that are taller than John McCain,
Besides these three people, and the SUV

23/6 commented on this article, and also referenced John McCain's sensitivity to his shortness. (Huh?)

The shortness part, isn't why I am blogging this. Because I could care less if McCain is touchy about his lack of tallness. What I did find interesting was in the comment section, at the bottom of the webpage. A comment made by an ex-Air Force officer, who remarked about John McCain's POW HERO status and lack there of. Now I don't know if this ex-Air Force officer knew John McCain or not. But never-the-less, it raises a lot of suspicion about Maverick McCain's Hero Rank. I can't help but wonder, why the Obama Camp doesn't seem interested in using it, the same way the NASTY ONES, on the other side of the political arena would... (THE RED SIDE)

An interesting comment from demogorgon
As an ex-air force officer (1962-1967) I'm glad it's finally coming out that this man is NO hero! He destroyed 5 airplanes, admitted that he was a "gambler" when he flew; went in alone on a Hanoi target when the bombing run was being called off; and then tried to "outrun" a SAM missile. Things got SO bad that none of his fellow officers wanted to fly with him and he was being re-evaluated for removal from flying status when he was shot down. Words like "reckless", "intemperate" and "lacks common sense" were part of the lexicon of John McCain, naval pilot. I don't mind the "confessions" while he was a POW, that was pretty much SOP, but what I DO mind is that his so-called "selflessness" when he "refused" to accept early release was anything but...he WAS offered early release because of his family connections, but was ORDERED not to accept it! And now, his never-ending use of his "heroism" as if he'd actually been one. He's been a manipulator and a user all his life...EXACTLY the same as George Bush, each being dismally inept or an abject failure at everything they have "attempted"...other than to use family connections to get ahead. (The end of demogorgon's comment)


Holy, "SOP", Batman! If only one third of this is true... it's explosive.

I also know, why the Obama Camp will not use it... We on the Left are above the shitty shenanigans the right-winged ones use... I sincerely hope Obama can win without the dirty, low-down, character assassination tactics the republicans, in all their hatefulness, rely on!!! Come on America elect decency over unscrupulousness for a change. The peace-of-mind you save may be your own!


Excerpted From The Rolling Stone Magazine:

In its broad strokes, McCain's life story is oddly similar to that of the current occupant of the White House. John Sidney McCain III and George Walker Bush both represent the third generation of American dynasties. Both were born into positions of privilege against which they rebelled into mediocrity. Both developed an uncanny social intelligence that allowed them to skate by with a minimum of mental exertion. Both struggled with booze and loutish behavior. At each step, with the aid of their fathers' powerful friends, both failed upward. And both shed their skins as Episcopalian members of the Washington elite to build political careers as self-styled, ranch-inhabiting Westerners who pray to Jesus in their wives' evangelical churches.

23/6 Presents: Things That Are Taller Than John McCain

A new Rolling Stone article demolishes John McCain's self-anointed maverick status. He was a bad pilot who benefited greatly from his family's Navy lineage. As a POW, he confessed to his torturers. He cheated on both wives and has an uncontrollable temper. Also, John McCain is touchy about his small stature. Sayeth the Stone:

"McCain is sensitive about his physical appearance, especially his height. The candidate is only five-feet-nine, making him the shortest party nominee since Michael Dukakis." Some people speculate that McCain is actually five-feet-seven, without the lifts.

Either way, Rumplestiltskin is a shorty. Taking a cue from Things That Are Younger Than John McCain, 23/6 presents: Things That Are Taller Than John McCain:
