On John McCain, war hero and senator

One of the best posts I've read dealing with John McCain's "heroism" in Vietnam, scholarship, and temperament is found today on Down With Tyranny and is titled:

People Who Know McCain's Mettle The Best Are The Least Likely To Vote For Him

It begins thus:

And we're not just talking about ex-wives and abandoned children and other shunned family members and the fellow Republican senators who loathe and distrust him. Sure Thad Cochran (R-MS) famously told the media that he's worked with McCain for over 30 years and that "the thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me." But it is the people who have served with McCain who have watched him puff himself up and exploit his military serviced who are the ones most eagerly flocking to Obama. You may have read last week that troops deployed abroad have contributed 6 to 1, Obama over McCain. They know McCain is an irrational warmonger itching for a fight and that he doesn't have the temperament to be Commander in Chief.

I hade fun reading all this. It is like the junk I get re Obama except that McCain has a record to look at so it is easier to see what he and his buddies would probably do. Obama is still a blank slate so he might do good. McCain’s record shows mne he will not do good. That makes my choice easy. I will vote for Obama.
