john McCain - War hero :
for crying out loud STOP going on about McCain being a war hero.
He IS NOT and never has been a war hero .He only got medals because he was the son of an Admiral in the US Navy.
He had to be seen to be winning medals otherwise his father would have lost face.
Ok he spent 5 years in a ivetcong concentration camp but he had lots of special privelages partly because he was the son of an admiral who was valueable as a POw and because he sang like a Canary to the Vietcong.
Whats so special about that ?
5 years in a POW camp is a hell of sorts but it doesnt compare to being in the firing line fighting in Vietnam.
Not the same thing at all.
Overrated and dont mention the USS Forrestal fire.
