I have huge respect for Sen. McCain’s service to his country, his true grit in surviving many years as a POW, and his courage in even strapping himself into a fighter jet and zooming over enemy territory. But as to how this experience uniquely qualifies him to be Commander in Chief, my good friend Don Davidge points out that we would all be better served by electing a pilot who flew 30, 40, 50 SUCCESSFUL missions over Vietnam. Where is that candidate?
After seven and a half years of unmitigated disaster spawned by our shoot-from-the hip cowboy president, we cannot afford another go at macho mayhem. McCain is a man of honor, but he is not presidential timber.
