debacle.

Got shot up rather badly, taking 8 (9 times. When he fell, that ninth shot hit him is his heel, he said his feet flew up as he got knocked down, although I can't say right or left.)machine gun shots qualifies as badly, doesn't it "Her Daddy" came from money then divorced and married even more money.
Dad was the guy in my town that got shot a whole lot.
McCAin is not my hero. My Dad is. As are others I have come across in my life.

@on the cusp He had rank. What he said was as CO, he yanked off his sergeant's tag off his shirt, said he knew something was coming, and he wanted to be there.
He could have stayed it California, driving Generals around to their parties.
He volunteered for combat.

He said at least once that all he did to get his war hero title was get shot down and captured. Although I don't usually take politicians at their word, I am inclined to believe him.
And he did throw off some good one-liners. Also some incredibly sexist ones and some very cruel ones.

But, I can understand why he looms large in his daughter's mind, as well as why so many alt neolibercon Democrats seem so fond of him.

ETA: Just to clarify: McCain's looming large in his daughter's mind and why alt neoliberal cons were fond of him are unrelated. She's fond of him because he is her father. (Hence her TV presence.) The latter are fond of him because their politics are very similar, including war mongering: "Senator McCain and I are ready for that 3 a.m. phone call....."

the vast majority of us have PTSD. I think it explains a lot.

She's a sick woman.

In some quarters, it's whispered she's actually worse.

Meghan McCain doesn't have a Hoosier Daddy.

Hoosiers are from Indiana. The McCains are from Arizona. Biggrin
