    but the more I learned about him, his background and his current thinking the less I had. I respect the fact that he was held as a prisoner of war but so were thousands of others. He should be prosecuted for picking the Wasilla Hillbilly as his running mate.

      if he had followed his briefing orders and stayed away from an area that that was known to have SAM missile sites.

      I guess he thought he was too good a pilot to be brought down by a missile.

      So, yeah, he was a POW, and that was horrible, but if he'd have followed orders he never would have been shot down in the first place.

      And Johnny would have been just another retired naval aviator and never made it in politics.

      Fate is such a fickle bitch.
