This clever, "it's funny 'cause it's true" video, a Nineteen Eighty-four parody, shows us the new defense for any John McCain gaffe: he was a prisoner of war.
Now, I can't imagine what it would have been like to go through something like that. It is a truly unfortunate thing that happened to McCain, and I doubt any Democrat would belittle the experience with anything akin to purple band-aids. But increasingly, McCain's POW experience is being trotted out as an answer to any gaffe he makes. From cheating on his first wife to forgetting how many houses he has, we're met with, "but, he was a POW!"
I don't think having been a POW automatically makes you ready to be President, and I don't think it explains adultery or being out of touch. What do you think?
