Despite being tortured by the North Vietnamese, John McCain was not broken until he went into political combat with a war-avoiding, dim-witted, spoiled trust fund baby, George W. Bush.
In 2000, the Bush campaign used all of these smears on McCain.
- Push polls in the South accusing him of having an illegitimate black child
- Calling his wife a drug addict
- Saying McCain's time as a POW in Vietnam may have made him a Manchurian candidate
Why did he prostrate and humiliate himself to someone who is clearly less of a man, and can barely speak a coherent sentence even when someone is whispering in a microphone in his ear?
Maybe because McCain is owned by the kind of people who own Bush (and who Bush is himself), the wealthy who see us as so much cattle to milked with every new financial scam they dream up, and slaughtered when they need to do a hostile takeover of some other countries oil fields or keep the natives in a plantation or sweatshop nation from demanding a better standard of living.
Bush should be an albatross around McCain's neck, so every American will remember who he will serve if he is elected president: the inbred, sociopathic, children of privilege.
