Now we get to the John McCain as "War Hero" problem. I have been holding back, because the Obama campaign doesn't want to go there. However, considering all the horrible places the McCain/Palin campaign have gone during the convention and beyond, the truth must come out. Now.
John Sidney McCain the Third made propaganda tapes for the North Vietnamese, in exchange for special treatment and care by visiting Cuban doctors.
There. It's said. This is the reason why a goodly portion of Vietnam vets call McCain "Songbird"...or way worse. This is why McCain stonewalled all attempts to find out whether there were live POWs in Vietnam during the late 1970s-early 1980s.
Try to put lipstick on that decaying hog carcass.
