A Maverick, but not Bart or Bret….

Notes that I’ve lifted from various sites on the ‘net:
“John McCain was leader of the Keating Five, and interceded on behalf of convict Charles Keating in the S&L fraud which cost taxpayers billions. In other words, he was a true republican hero.
John McCain got a taxpayer-funded education at the US Naval Academy because his father and grandfather were U.S. Navy admirals, a similar route had also been followed by George W. Bush.
John McCain sadly never made the rank of admiral, and in fact many think that he was lucky to have been able to keep his U.S. citizenship.
John McCain graduated 895th in a class of 900 at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, that position is fifth from the bottom for those of you who are attending school in Rick Perry’s Texas.
John McCain may have qualified as an ace of the Viet Nam War by destroying five aircraft. It should be noted that he was the pilot of each of those downed aircraft.
John McCain pledged the proceeds from public campaign financing, which ‘reform’ legislation is one of his major ‘credits’, to collateralize a loan. Then he broke his own law by saying he was not bound by his pledge.
John McCain continues to advocate tax cuts for only the wealthiest citizens.
If John McCain were Black, people would call him a LOOTER.”
Here’s a link for this page should you like to forward it to either someone you care about, or perhaps someone you’d like to piss off, whichever one happens to apply:
