According to Nicholas Kristoff, McCain’s penis tastes like chicken:
What sets Senator McCain apart isn’t so much his physical courage in Vietnam; many of his fellow prisoners also showed immense bravery under torture. But the United States Congress tends to be a courage-free zone, so Mr. McCain’s orneriness toward Republican primary voters makes him a lionheart in the political world.
It’s a pleasure to see candidates who don’t just throw red meat to the crowds but try to offer vegetarian options.
Consider torture. There was nary a vote in the Republican primary to be gained by opposing the waterboarding of swarthy Muslim men accused of terrorism. But Mr. McCain led the battle against Dick Cheney on torture, even though it cost him donations, votes and endorsements.
And then he promptly failed to vote for banning it last week.
The rest of the piece goes downhill from there, if you can believe that.
