The POW deflector shield is becoming thin

Greg Sargent of TPM:

McCain slipped a reference to his war captivity into an interview McCain did with CBS that's airing today. He appeared to be referring to Joe Biden's crack yesterday that McCain has trouble considering people's kitchen table issues because he has to decide which of his own seven kitchen tables to use...

"I am grateful for the fact that I have a wonderful life," McCain said. "I spent some years without a kitchen table, without a chair, and I know what it's like to be blessed by the opportunities of this great nation...So the fact is that we have homes, and I'm grateful for it."
Senator McCain, we know you were a POW. We know you suffered. We honor and thank you for your service.

But that does not give you a 'Get Out of Jail Free' card for the rest of your life.

We know you had nothing at one time in prison and now you have an immense pile. You are extremely wealthy, beyond the comprehension of most Americans. You have so much you couldn't even answer exactly how many homes you have.

When you did not have a kitchen table nor a chair was thirty five years ago. It no longer is applicable to what you have done since then.

John McCain's response to any criticism:

A noun. A verb. POW.

Just sayin'.

Everyone is yelling POW! now.. I think McCain better not use it too much or we will begin to laugh like we did with Guiliani.

(Actually I think it's already happened...)
