John McSame: Another Unprincipled Princeling

A callow, drunken young man jumps over thousands of better qualified applicants and gets a covetted spot at a top university because his father and grandfather were both VIPs. Sound familiar? It seems John McCain and George Bush have this, among other things, in common.

Also being kinda vaguely on the take, despite his claim of being lobby-proof as the even the WaPo reports. Read too here about how St. John limited the investigation into the now imprisoned uber-lobbyist Jack Abramoff, so as to keep damage to the GOP minimal. And here's a compendium of McCain sleaze.

And say, did you know that St. John somehow managed to have five of the taxpayer's aircraft he piloted for the navy completely destroyed? Granted some of them can't really be shown to be his fault, but it seems like a bad omen, bad juju, or a metaphor going somewhere to signify.
Here's a fun place to read about Saint John. Did you know he's actually a complete dick? Fun quote:
Like his father and grandfather, McCain enrolled in the United States Naval Academy. There, he earned over 100 demerits. His reaction was that it was "bullshit."

But it was in his off-base activities that McCain truly excelled. According to one classmate, "being on liberty with John McCain was like being in a train wreck." It is unclear what being with McCain during his presidency would be like for the nation. Unfortunately, America has no direct experience from which to draw with a president who was a temperamental son of a distinguished military man and who in college was a temperamental fuckup who liked to party. What could possibly be so dangerous about that?

McCain graduated from the Naval Academy in 1958, ranked 894th out of 899. As historians have noted, there were five people in his class who were actually bigger fuckups than McCain, but none of them are running for president.
More of St. John's lies, more fun facts to come.
