McCain In Perspective

Think about everything you've done since Sept. 11, 2001. Every birthday. Every holiday. Every vacation. Every party.

Before Lost and American Idol went on the air (2004 and 2002). Before the Patriots won the first of three Super Bowls (2002), and before the Red Sox and the White Sox won the World Series (2004 and 2005). Before the final collapse of Enron. Before Perez Hilton (and just about everybody else) had a blog. Before YouTube.

This is how long John McCain spent as a prisoner of war.

Imagine five and a half years, 1967-1973, in the Hanoi Hilton.

With his recent turn to the right, and his "pro-surge" stance on the War in Iraq, I would never, ever vote for him, but I sure do honor and respect what he gave up for his country.

You can watch his presidential announcement last night on the Late Show With Letterman over at CBS.com. LINK.

You can review what George Bush and his chicken hawk friends did to McCain in 2000 here. When members of the Bush Campaign Hit Squad ultimately meet their maker, I hope they show some regret for the repugnant way they smeared war heroes: McCain and Kerry.

Get ready! The Clinton hit squad is armed and ready! It may put Bush's to shame. Right now it's focused on Obama. As soon as he's done, McCain, Giuliani and Romney better get ready because the Clintons have to have better stuff to use on these flawed candidates.

They have to take out the dems before they can get to eating their own. It's going to be an interesting couple of years.
