    McCain planning to be in Senate next year?

    That is what he suggested at a town hall meeting earlier this week in New Mexico by way of offering a tip of the cap to Rep. Steve Pearce, who is running to succeed Sen. Pete Domenici.

    Via a very attuned Dem:

    McCain: "Could I mention the presence of my friend, Congressman Steve Pearce, who I believe will be joining me in the United States Senate?
    (Applause)
    Steve, thank you."

    Some other McCain tidbits:


    -"After High School, McCain enrolled in the US Naval Academy, where he earned over 100 demerits (unpolished shoes, etc.) every year, joining the 'Century Club'"

    [b]-"He graduated with bottom rank: 894 out of 899 people in his class."[/b]

    -"In his early days, he was known as a subpar pilot, crash landing once during aviation training after his engine quit during landing, again in Spain after flying too low and getting entangled in power lines, and again after his engine stalled over Virginia. He was not seriously hurt in these incidents."

    -"# Also in 1974, he flew back to Saigon (in South Vietnam, just months before the fall) to lecture at the South Vietnamese war college. McCain's marriage began falling apart, and he had several extramarital affairs, which he blamed on selfishness and immaturity."

    Yes, because these facts all have a direct correlation on his ability to be President.

    He didn't shine his shoes forty years ago?? No!

    Actually some of these are pretty complimentary.

    33. On Christmas Eve 1968, the North Vietnamese staged a false church service as a media event for photographers and film cameras. McCain famously defined his captors instructions to be quiet and loudly yelled 'Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you, you son of a biiitch!' and flipped off the camera whenever it was pointed at him.

    37. All told, McCain was held as a PoW for five and a half years, and he was released on March 15th, 1973. Had he taken the offer for early release, he would have avoided five of those years.

    41. McCain began treatment for his injuries, with the goal of getting back into active military service. Most people doubted this was feasible.

    42. In 1974, he had recuperated to the point where he could fly again, and became Commanding Officer of the largest attack squadron in the Navy.

    50. McCain retired from the Navy in 1981, with recognitions including a Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart, and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

    US Flag lapel pins, Iraq strategy shifting, denouncing your 30+ year pastor...

    Bigger flip-flopper, John Kerry or Barrack Obama?

    I'm glad most of McCains' slip-ups were 40 years ago and not all since he started running for President.

    You would have to be able to ignore a lot of things McCain has done through the years for this post to be accurate.
