John Aravosis asks: Honestly, besides being tortured, what did McCain do to excel in the military?
It’s not “nice” to ask the question, but it’s actually a pretty good question. Yes, we all know that John McCain was captured and tortured in Vietnam (McCain won’t let you forget). A lot of people don’t know, however, that McCain made a propaganda video for the enemy while he was in captivity. Putting that bit of disloyalty aside, what exactly is McCain’s military experience that prepares him for being commander in chief?
And who better to pose the question than War Hero John Aravosis?
The temptation to become Outrageously Outraged is understandable, and I salute those who give free rein to their anger. Feel free to do so in comments, in fact.
Nevertheless, let’s not lose sight of the fact that it helps Republicans for the public to focus on Aravosis’s question.
Aravosis, in addition to being a punk, obviously doesn’t understand this.
But it’s true.
