How Manchurian-Candidate can this fellow get. So if his daughter gets captured in battle, gets beaten or worse (most likely worse) as a POW, would he also be “comfortable” with that? What did they really do to him in Vietnam?

Well, one of the daughters anyway ~ ‘Miss Chubbs’ most likely. She’d like that captivity part anyway. imagine the plight of the enemy knowing this ol’gal was heir to $1 billion and depending on how she is treated you and your commanding officers are all going to get green cards ~ eventually!

Daughters of politicians should be the first ones drafted - and put in infantry.

What a pandering, appeasing dumb sh_t McQueeg is! Not only was he a sh_tty pilot, he is even dumber as a U.S. senator. And he STILL got re-elected for the 5th or 6th time. Unbelieveable!

But hey, I suppport his fatty daughters to serving in front line positions as well.... Go for it, McQueeg! Make her the point lead!

Ace McCain dutifully reads the script put in front of him, as long as a Democrat wrote it.

Twit, yes. ‘Little’...not so much. Can’t imagine an infantry squad having to pick up the slack for that whiny, spoiled piglet. She would be fragged post haste.

John, I think your daughter would be more useful dropped behind enemy lines where she could spread VD amongst the hostile troops. That little harlot could probably take down entire divisions with the clap.

NOBODY should be comfortable with their daughter OR son serving in combat.

But, they should be PROUD and PRAYERFUL.

“What did they really do to him in Vietnam?”

The time has long passed for anyone to use his time in the Hanoi Hilton as an excuse for years of anti-American, tyrannical behavior.

Like a good RINO, McCain’s carrying out orders from his GOPe masters, plain and simple.

That’s a mighty strange thing for someone to say, having experienced years as a POW in the Hanoi Hilton. Strange even for him.

Send in the wrath of Meghan.

The enemy would think she was a cow, allowing her to walk right into their ranks and kill ‘em all.

Nobody would keep Meghan as a POW. They would toss her back within a week, after they got tired of her scratching her inane “blog posts” into the wall of her cell and constantly moaning about how great homosexuality is.

She’s like Chris Farley’s “Gap Girl” character, from SNL, only less funny and less attractive.

I see another check from George Soros and Open Society just got deposited to Hanoi John McCain

The enemy would love for Massive Meghan McCain to be in combat for the USA. Once they stop laughing....our enemy knows there is one division not to worry about

Having watched his daughter in action, I’d have to agree with Juan that his daughter should be ordered to the front lines in the event of any serious war.

But of COURSE we should consider Meghan McCain for military service!

Here’s a few suggestions where she could be of greatest value to her fellow soldiers:

* Engineers - as barrier material;
* Infantry - remedial marksmanship (”If you can hit THAT target, you’re a go at this station!”);
* Signal Corps - As Chunk said, “If you can hear me - RUN!”
* Army Aviation - “In case of a water landing, PFC McCain can be used as a flotation device...”

If it were just his daughter, then it’d be all on him. The daughters of other families is a different matter, I think.

I’d have to agree with McCain on this one. The daughter I’ve seen and heard would be hard to worry much about.

Fine with that John. Get Meghan McCain to sign up for the Marines and put her in the infantry! Boot camp would get the little porker into shape and maybe teach her some respect.

This one surprises me. Notwithstanding our disagreement with McCain on many issues, I am not going to easily dismiss his opinion on this issue. He was in combat. He was captured and tortured. He, more than any of us, knows the risks of being in combat. He has male children in the military and knows what could happen to them. I can’t believe that any of these advocates would stick to their position the first time their daughter — or any woman — ends up getting captured and then gang raped by these savages, or tortured.
