Only in America

It's a testament to the unconditional adulation and reverence offered to the military in this country that these comments by Wesley Clark are being pitched about the media as high blasphemy. Any sane person can see the obvious truth in the statement that McCain's status as a POW doesn't give him any inherent qualification for the presidency. But because it might sound vaguely critical of the military to someone hanging upside down cross-eyed, Clark--who was the former commander of NATO forces in Europe and thus hardly a DFH--is getting raked over the coals.

You shouldn't need to guess by now how Obama responded, by reinforcing the media nonsense that Clark somehow failed to respect McCain's military service, which he went to great lengths not to do.
