THE FACT THAT JOHN McCAIN IS 71 YEARS OLD IS THE LEAST OF MY WORRIES.
When he was in the Navy, far from being an officer and a gentleman, he was a raunchy party boy and a risk-taking hot dog fly boy.
McCain had 23 unexceptional combat missions and survived as a POW and he managed the pretext of being a war hero based on that.
At a minimum,he collaborated ” SOME” with his captors. There is much to indicate that he sang like a canary to get better medical treatment and the company of prostitutes in a Hanoi hotel.
His bluster and BS probably gives him some credibility as a warrior. There is nothing to suggest to me that he has a decent knowledge of Iraqi politics, military matters, economics or diplomacy.
If, God forbid, we go from a phone cowboy who barely can ride a horse and lives in a country home that is not even a working farm to a phoney war hero , I will be greatly concerned.
