Commentary on the so-called Creation/Evolution/Intelligent Design Debate and Right-Wing nuttery in general - and please ignore the typos (I make lots!)

I agree with Wes CLark

Retired General Wesley Clark stated recently that "... being shot down" doesn't qualify McCain to be commander in chief, and the McCain camp is "outraged."

But the problem is, it is the truth.

I have read that McCain finished in the bottom 1-2% of his class at Annapolis. That he lost 5 aircraft during his career - only once to enemy action. That is what is referred to as a 'Black Ace' (a feat shared with right-wing nutjob Bob Dornan, who used to brag about his stint as a fighter pilot - never mentioned that he somehow managed to stay stateside during Viet Nam and lost 5 planes while he was at it).

McCain's service is honorable. But getting shot down doesn't make you a hero, nor does it make you more qualified to be CinC than anyone else, especially when you intend to follow the failed policies of the Bush administration....

He's a Reverse Ace, a rank that very very few have achieved.

Either that, or he was working for the terrorists, even then.

If that's true then every voter should be told about it. To be in the bottom 2% is disgraceful enough to make him unqualified to be president of anything.

I could never vote for McCain for several reasons, but the most important reason is because the Discovery Institute likes him.

What's scary is that right now it looks like McCain might actually have a chance at getting elected. And I have my doubts about his ability to survive all four years.

He does look a bit sickly, doesn't he?

4 more years of Bush-style governance and policies.

I wonder how many trillions our children will owe if that happens?
