Based on lib standards Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy had, have and has been trying to avoid the truth for all those and these years. Since neither served a day in the military, yes Teddy, had 2 years of ARNG service, but that don't count according to Dan Rather.

If there is any relevance to the superstitions about life after death, then old John McCain might someday be obliged to explain himself to his ancestors, who actually DID serve this nation with honor.

In this life, he is just another service brat, living on his wife's money and his father's reputation.

John McCain has been reduced to nothing but a pathetic hack.

For the last 40 years McCain has been hiding behind a false veil of service. He caved in to the NVA in Hanoi and his service in the Senate is disgraceful. He's not hero.

This issue is totally irrevelant to the serious problems we have in this country today. It is the honest source of those problems that our leadership in this country need to be concerned about. Sexual preferences is a very stupid issue for these individuals to be consuming their time and effort with.

My comments concerning the senatorial candidate that is possibly into the occult of witchcraft becuase of something she became involved in as a teenager, the young and dumb years of exploration. Nobody ever made mention of the fact that Bill and Hillary Clinton spent their honeymoon in Haiti, the capital of voodoo, when either one of them ran for office.

Ann Telnaes maybe you should do an annimation explaining to everyone how the electronic voodoo that takes place here in the US can make individuals choose different sexual preferences as they are growing up. Ann just how much do you think the occult is involved in running our government now? There are many individuals who are now coming to the realization that the occult is a very big factor in what takes place in our Capitol and elsewhere in State and Local politics.

Is there anybody out there who still likes, or even admires John McCain anymore?

I once did.

@bignoisylawnmower, Sen. Reid voted in favor and then changed his vote to against because Senate procedure only allows a bill to be brought to the floor again by a Senator who originally opposed the measure. By changing his vote to nay, he has reserved the right to bring the bill up for a vote again.

Reid voted against it. Harry Reid is the one who brought the bill up for vote and then voted against letting it come to the floor for debate....no Democrats don't play politics only except when they need to get reelected.

John McCain has become the consummate politician. Say or due what ever it takes to get elected or reelected. I once admired him as a strait shooter but I found my impressions were just an illusion.
