Article is indicative of everything that is wrong with dialogue in America.

I wouldn't lose respect for his service, it was honorable. But he has **** all over it with his unAmerican political service.

i certainly appreciate all who have served this country. a sincere Thank You to you.

i do have to agree with this article. McCain has done great harm to this country and he should be removed from the Senate.

This.

I saw him speak the other night and nearly puked, that he keeps his 'Republican' label ...

His "service" has nothing to do with the fact that he's a destructive, cancerous influence on our liberty and our future.

McCain caved for the Vietnamese and caved for the democrats.
He was/is not a hero of any kind he is a collaborator

As for McCain's military service, he can shove it right up his tailpipe as partial penance for the men whose deaths he is personally responsible for....

Thanks Mcain. I never thought my party would be supporting a liberal. You are finally in leagues with your captors.

Your post and the posts of others here are very disrespectful to the brave men and women who've risked their lives to defend this country.

Since when do our brave service members have to meet your personal standards before you respect them? Where does that even come from?

McCain was tortured and still today cannot raise his arms above shoulder level. He did what he had to do to survive.

YOU would have done the same thing to survive in that Vietnamese prison camp.

I can't believe you guys dare to put conditions on a persons military service just because you have a different political opinion.

That is just wrong!

I don't agree with you very often JB but you hit the nail on the head with that one.

How many decades must go by before we have the intellectual honesty to admit that the Vietnam war was a travesty, a farce, and a waste, and that one's "service", or lack thereof, has absolutely no bearing on their fitness to hold public office?

Hopefully we never do.

A person's conduct and bravery under hostile fire brings out that person's true moral character and is a measure of his dedication to others.

Military service, especially in war time, most certainly is a good indicator of a person's fitness for public office.

Just because McCain is sleezeball politician, doesn't mean he isn't a brave man who served his country with honor.

Although I was not a POW I am a Vietnam veteran, specifically a USMC infantry machine gunner.
My training ordered us to resist interrogation to the death. Many captives resisted and died. McCain didn't and others died.
These orders are not my personal standards but the standards of our military organizations.
I have earned the right to put conditions on Mc Cain just as I have put conditions on John Kerry.
Neither served honorably

personally, I respect what he did from 1968-to 1972. he endured torture that none of us will ever know. you want to judge that? let's see how many times you can have your shoulders dislocated before telling the person doing it everything they want to hear.

everything after that is repugnant to me.

Is it now? I imagine then that the name "Benedict Arnold" should be kindly embraced for the bulk of his service before he committed treason, in which he was a very great hero of the American revolution...

Nothing that has or will be said will change the fact that McCain collaborated and his fellow service members paid the price

No, I don't think you were ever ordered to do that. Who died because McCain gave in to the Viet Cong's torture?

Do you have proof of this so called "collaboration"? Do you even know what collaboration means?
Can you back up these claims about McCain?

Ever hear of a famous rev war hero by the name, General Arnold ? Just like mcjuan ... One is rotting in hell, the other is on stand-by. Both are traitors!

Some of you guys are either draft dodging libertarians or 13 years old?

Yes McCain is a piss poor excuse for a republican politician, but don't besmirch his military service because of it.

And while McCain was in the hands of the North Vietnamese, Clinton was what - studying in England - and Bush the Younger was enrolled in the Texas Air National Guard which could have been sent to Vietnam.

All of which appears irrelevant to their performances as elected politicians "representing" their constituents.

Logically contradicts this:

But you already knew that because your are brilliant political satirist. And, as always, I salute you.
