-good news though- this just in- he has been given a stay of execution.
i hope the truth comes out, either way.

and thanks for the blog, i hadn't heard all the evidence and lack thereof.

Hey - I know the "McCain wet-started his jet on the USS Forrestal and cooked off a rocket in the jet behind his" story sounds plausible. However, if you look at the Navy incident reports and deck diagrams (and believe them), McCain's jet was on the opposite side of the ship, with its exhaust pointed out over the deck towards the ocean, with no jet parked behind his. (http://attach.high-g.net/attachments/cva_59_fire_aft_deck_plan_934.png)

The Forrestal fire has been conflated with another fire on board the USS Independence in 1969 in which the exhaust from an aircraft engine starter apparatus DID cook off a Zuni rocket. But again, there was no "wet start". (http://www.ordnance.org/mishaps.htm)

Beyond all this, McCain was an A4E Skyhawk pilot. The A4 did not have an afterburner and so could not perform a wet start. (http://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=165)

None of this changes that fact that McCain sucks. Vote Obama.

Reminds me that my more politically enlightened friends refused to believe the story behind Bill Clinton's execution of Ricky Ray Rector.

I believe that the study Listner Jim had in mind was this here one: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/14/AR2008091402375.html.

I guess I'd make the election about the actual presidential candidates rather than the one VP. I'm still chuckling over your poll story... American Idol, look out!

too bad McCain was born in Panama... not eligible to be president.

That explains why he picked Palin as his running mate--to prevent anyone from daring to challenge the natural-born citizenship issue.
