Video Worth Watching


I have just read a blog post by the Cunning Runt, at The Little Bang Theory. He has included a video made by Phillip Butler, who was a classmate of John McCain at the Naval Academy, and who was also a prisoner of war along with him and about 600 other men. In it, he simply expresses his opinion, in a very calm, rational manner. No theatrics - just a statement of fact as he sees it.

I could not find a way to embed the video here, so I hope that you will go to the link to Little Bang Theory and take a look and a listen.

Very interesting comments from the guy in the video. Sounds like McCain has always had a bit of a short fuse, and it only makes me wonder how 5+ years as a POW might have influenced that, as well as any possible long-term physical effects.

I am SO GLAD to see this. I just got another email praising McC and bashing Obama, and I sent this to him. He's another person who thinks that military service makes you more fit to be prez. POOH!

Bobbie, thanks so much for the mention and referrals! I get regular emails from several activist organizations and will try to link to more of them.

And deborah, I have the same concerns - I can't quite imagine going through that ordeal and coming out "normal."

'Course, I'm not actually claiming that I'd go into such a situation "normal..."

CR: I'm glad some of my readers came to visit your blog.

For the rest of you: Obviously, I have the same concerns. Spread the word. Thanks for your interest.
