    His was a life of service and dedication few can totally appreciate. Shot down over Vietnam and held captive and tortured brutally for 5 and a half years, he refused early release because of a code of honor that those held longest were to be released first.
    Serving in Congress for 35 years, he reached across to aisle to mentor young Senators of both parties and worked with Democrats like Ted Kennedy and Russ Feingold to enact legislation to reform government..... America lost a hero yesterday....

    He was one of the few remaining sane, reasonable and respectful people in national politics.

    Sen. John McCain joins critics of Roger Goodell

    Some excerpts:

    "I'm a great admirer of coach Belichick, but I'm not sure he's the best at PR," McCain said. "He doesn't have a warm feeling about the media. It's obvious."

    "His father was one of the institutions at the Naval Academy, on the coaching staff. And he grew up there. So I've always had kind of a special feeling about Belichick."

    In that vein, McCain sounded proud that he was sanctioned by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    "I'm barred from going to Siberia," McCain said.

    He's also miffed that Putin kept the Super Bowl ring that Patriots owner Robert Kraft handed to him during a visit in 2005, thinking he was merely showing the jewelry off. Putin kept the ring and claimed it was a gift.

    "That's a priority," said McCain, who is friendly with Kraft. "Get the Russians out of Ukraine and get that ring back for Bob Kraft."

    Without getting into his political career (essentially being a whore for the MIC), the guy spilled like the Exxon Valdez after he was captured according to a Retired Army Colonel and the info he passed along got a lot of US military killed.

    I know, let's not "speak ill of the dead" but, OTOH, let's not get all hagiographic on a dead politician.

    Yeah, whatever! Being captured by the VC makes you a victim not a hero. A hero divulges only name, rank, and serial number and tells his captors to eat sh*t if they want more than that. Selling out your countryman for better treatment at the "Hanoi Hilton" makes you the exact opposite of a hero.

    Not sure I get your point but this opinion seems to be shared by many who knew and served with the guy.
