A Hero Ain't Nothing But A Sandwich

Once and for all, John McCain, R-Hensley, is not a hero.

He flew a plane. He got shot down. He was a POW.

He suffered greatly and he survived.

End of story.

Since then, as an elected representative of the good people of Arizona, using his actual suffering and his mythical "heroism" as crutches every step of the way, he has done very, very little, almost nothing in fact, nada, zip, for the state.

Of course, you are not allowed to mention that.

To be fair, he did loose on the world the free form comedy stylings of one Sarah Palin, for which we should be eternally grateful.

But still...

This doesn't make Donald J. Trump any less of an asshole. However, it should be noted that the hypocrisy of the Republicans in l'affaire Trump v. McCain is truly breathtaking.

This is the party, after all, that warmly applauded the Swift boating of John Kerry.

And let's not forget what they did to Max Cleland, either.

But those were Democrats, and therefore, by Republican Tea Party standards, prima facie un-American traitors.
