Heckling is usually pretty stupid, the "quick, sharp" comeback was as weak and flaccid as McCain's dick, and this article is crap. There's nothing to like here.

Seriously? Israel paid ~$3.3mil in 1968. (About $22m in today's dollars.)

What about it?

It's about half that the US paid to the families of that Iranian airliner. But to be honest, the Vincennes was less understandable.

$100,000 was a lot of money in the late 60s. The median income of a family in 1968 was $8,632

They also paid about the same amount to be spread out amongst those who were wounded and about $15 million to the US government for the damage to the ship.

He couldn't read Wikipedia?

"In May 1968, the Israeli government paid US$3,323,500 (US$22.2 million in 2012) as full payment to the families of the 34 men killed in the attack. In March 1969, Israel paid a further $3,566,457 in compensation to the men who had been wounded. "

As an elected official who has helped spawn Sarah Palin unto the world and espouses bafflyingly ignorant foreign policy given his military experience, McCain deserves to be strung up by his buster browns.

In context it is. Burr was the last of about 6 comics just getting abused by some crowd of shock jock fans (Opie and Anthony ?) that were just there to heckle and be asshats. Burr just launches into a 10 minute long solid stream of consciousness of throbbing blue veined hate on that actually begins to win the crowd over so he deliberately switches up his insults to piss them off even more.

The Why Not Guy: I think we should get reparations from Senator McCain for making Sarah Palin a household name.


McCain squandered any political accomplishments from a long career by sucking up to the camp that used blatant racism to beat him in 2000, then solidified his legacy as a political joke by giving the national stage to the political equivalent of Forrest Gump with tits.

He's already been and will continue to be punished for that.

Still, the heckler was just being an asshole.

From what I have heard from other "residents" of the Hanoi Hilton, they couldn't stand McCain in their midst. Even as a POW he acted like a prima donna special vip prisoner being the son of an Admiral, and even had the audacity of suggesting that the POWs make bargains with the Vietnamese so some some of the prisoners (which would include him, of course) would be sent home right away (instead of ALL OF US WALK OUT OF HERE OR NONE OF US WALK OUT OF HERE stance that the majority of prisoners agreed upon as a united front).

Look ahead. The latter act might still make him a hero.

Palin's nomination was the beginning of the Republican Party's final spiral into sheer madness. She gave the Teabaggers power, let them take control of the narrative.

McCain may have given the final blow to the Republican Party. All that's left is to let it bleed out, and hope that its death throes don't do too much damage.

I wouldn't presume to speak about his POW experience, but it's a pretty safe bet he got some special treatment in the military because of his dad's status. That's the only explanation why his commanders would still let him fly a multi-million dollar plane when he'd already crashed 4.

He kind of reminds me of Lloyd Bridges in Hot Shots

"You know, men, I've personally flown 194 missions and I was shot down every one. Come to think of it, I've never landed a plane in my life."

Aviators can be like that. There's a host of retarded US attacks on our allies that are appalling. Like in OIF, when a pair of A-10s had been briefed not to attack anything with orange roof-panels. A British convoy with roofs orange and some trucks with the entire 21-foot roof painted with the Union Jack get attacked after the A-10s call in "armored column with orange missiles on the roofs".

In WWII, US Navy AA gunners were told not to fire at aircraft headed to France. We lost half a dozen P-38 Lightnings to Naval AA fire on their way to France. This is even worse if you know what a P-38 looks like - perhaps the single most distinctive aircraft of WWII.

Think of the most retarded thing you can.

You're about halfway to what has really happened.

So when a couple of Mirage fighters zoom past the USS Liberty at 1000 knots, I find it completely plausible that they misidentified her. Our own aviators have done worse.
