McCain Is A Survivor
Piloting five planes into the ground only one of which was hit by enemy fire does not make you a hero. Living through horrific torture and imprisonment does not make you a hero. It makes you a survivor, plain and simple. It may also leave you with horrific psychological scars which cause you to explode at your family, friends, and colleagues as well as opponents or to gleefully sing about killing hundreds of thousands of people by bombing their country without provocation. It may, in other words, make you psychologically and morally unfit to wield the awesome power that is entrusted to the President of the United States. It may, and in McCain's case it surely does.
