John Mc Cain: Fool or Fraud?

It's now apparent that John McSame, just like Bush, cannot step to a microphone without lying through his teeth. His heinous new ad (which Chirs Matthews obligingly played free and without comment last night on Lardball), foregrounding his misfortune in Vietnam, tosses out this whopper:

Only a fool or a fraud talks tough or romantically about war, I was shot down over Vietnam and spent five years as a POW. Some of the friends I served with never came home. I hate war. And I know how terrible its costs are.

Just how this accords with his long history of cheerleading for the Iraq war, his ludicrously false assessments of it ("It was safe to go in the marketplace...." -- provided you had 100 bodyguards and five gunships for air cover) not to mention, his "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" joke, suggest that Mc Cain learned nothing from his five years in prison, and very little since.

Listent to the man, "I hate war." LOL. That's a good one, Maverick. He hates them so much he'll limit them, Plantagenet-style, to 100 Years, or so.

So which is it John: "fool," as you put it, "or fraud"? Or can it be both?
