I can't believe I stayed up to watch McCain's speech
John "maverick is just another word for being a dick" McCain's POW experience has all the ingredients of a redemptive tale, but instead it struck me as so much false humility. As Ezra Klein puts it at American Prospect, "Such public declarations of patriotism are not about why John McCain loves this country. They are about why this country should love John McCain."
