Virginia Makes McCain GOP Nomination Inevitable


While there are still no knock-out punches on the Dem side, McCain’s slim but take-all-the-delegates win in Virginia gives the McCain tally 60 more pledged delegates for a new total of 789.
McCain needs just 1191 to clinch the nomination — and it’s tough to see how Huckabee can gain any decisive ground against the war hero Senator.

    McCain a WAR HERO? He was one of the least skilled pilots in the Navy, and many blame him for the horrible crash on the U.S.S. Forrestal in 1967.
    While he was a POW McCain made statements that violated the U.S. Military Code of Contact. He’s also acknowledged that he received special treatment because he was the son of Admiral Jack McCain.
    But beyond that, McCain killed who knows how many Vietnamese civilians in a *war* that should never been fought. He also killed people defending their own homeland. He killed them from the sky.
    Tell me exactly how Vietnam threatened the U.S. and perhaps I’ll think about the possibility of McCain being a “war hero” as opposed to a loser, Daddy’s boy, traitor and killer of innocents.
