McCain doesn't think he talks about his POW status enough. Oh, noes! People might not realize he's a really-real super duper war hero if he doesn't bring it up at every single solitary opportunity! Quick: let every sentence be a noun, a verb, and POW!
This is an invitation I cannot resist.
Especially since I already have four out of the seven posts that would be necessary to have a POW Week. I'm sure, in light of what McCain believes, I'll have no trouble filling in the rest.
But why should we stop with just a few potshots at his ridiculous overuse of his history?
Why not open this up to you, my darlings?
Can you think of contests? Polls? Shall we start a list, with my crack army bringing back war trophies from their favorite political sites?
McCain wants to trivialize and debase his sacrifice. In the process, he trivializes and debases the sacrifices of so many other POWs, who served with as much (or more) honor, who came home and didn't spit on honor by turning their status into a cheap political trump card. It's fucking outrageous, is what it is. It shows us exactly what sort of man McCain is.
He wants it brought up more? Fine.
We'll bring it up.
And while we will never trivialize what these brave soldiers endured, we will most fucking certainly trivialize the use to which John "Exploiter" McLame has put it to.
