2. It is very apparent that you have not been listening. The point is not that McCain was tortured. The point is that his principles would not allow himself to be released before other American soldiers who had been captured before McCain. This shows that McCain does what is right, even if it results in things being worse for himself. This contrasts with Obama who one day says that taking public financing is a deep principle of his and then later on chucks his principles out the window because he thinks it might help him. With McCain there is a proven track record of doing what he thinks is right, no matter the personal costs and with Obama there is a proven track record of no honor, no integrity and doing whatever will enhance Obama.

That's funny. I was at a bookstore reading some of Barry Goldwater's recently published diaries and letters. Goldwater was rather disgusted with McCain's involvement in the Savings & Loan Scandal of the late 80's/early 90's.

I guess doing right involves being involved with sleazebags.

Too bad Barry's not around to tell us in person.

It's also interesting that the reference to Goldwater's diaries has disappeared from Sean Hannity's website.
