I watched retired Gen. Wes Clark on Face the Nation yesterday. When he said "I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president" I knew the chattering masses were going for the fainting couch clutching their pearls.
The main stream media has got to get over their mancrush with McCain. How exactly does getting shot down over Vietnam and held captive automatically make you ready to lead this country? I give him is due as far as being a combat veteran. But that is all I give him. Maveric my ass.
