It looks like John McCain has become the target the Republican party's "Dirty Tricks" brigade lately...
John McCain, veteran and POW, recently had his understanding of war and the nature of sacrifice questioned by another Republican, Dennis Hastert - who got out of serving like most chickenhawks.
Thankfully, McCain was ready with a response:
"The speaker is correct in that nothing we are called upon to do comes close to matching the heroism of our troops," he said. "All we're called upon to do is not spend our nation into bankruptcy while our soldiers risk their lives. I fondly remember a time when real Republicans stood for fiscal responsibility."
Careful with those Republicans... they eat their own!
