Mensch McCain

    Wow. Fabulous story.

    Mensch is the right descriptor.

    No direct comment as this speaks for itself.
    One addendum: McC jr. was in Iraq as a Marine recently. Not much fuss was made about this. Quite a change from members of the US upper classes steering their children away from the wars they support politically is it not?

    Everyone has the potential but few try or succeed, as Obama's recent unscripted and condescending comment about middle class voters clinging to guns and religion demonstrates.
