    So said John McCain yesterday.

    Can anyone tell me what exactly he's done in his life that makes this statement remotely true?

    Hmmm.. The bar scene was utter hell yet Mac managed to both elude the enemy (his wife) and still conquer woman after woman.

    Maybe the part he isn't telling us is that he's planning on invading Grenada again?

    I'm reasonably certain we can kick their ass, again, and probably even win a peace there, too.

    Do they have coconut oil, perhaps?

    All wars should be fought hand to hand and those in favor of war should be the first to go. Sending rockets removes the human element, it make death a video game. As the war nuts die they should be encased in plastic and shown to the youth of the world.

    We lost Vietnam. We're not doing well in Afghanistan. Iraq is questionable.
