I have to give Joe Biden credit for a great line during the Democratic primaries, when he said that Rudy Giuliani’s sentences all consisted of “A noun, a verb, and 9/11.” Because as you’ll recall, the answer to every question to Rudy started out “On 9/11 ….” Well, I think we have a new winner in the spin-o-rama contest: John “But I was a POW” McCain!
Appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, McCain was again asked that pesky question about the number of houses he and his wife own. McCain was quick to answer:
“I spent 5 1/2 years in a prison cell. I didn’t have a house. I didn’t have a kitchen table. I didn’t have a table.”
If you want to read what another POW has to say about John McCain, read this: I Spent Years as a POW with John McCain, and His Finger Should Not Be Near the Red Button.
UPDATE: I just stumbled across another example of the “Power of the POW” over at Crooks & Liars. It seems McCain loves him some ABBA, and he has this questionable taste in music because … you guessed it! He was a POW!
“If there is anything I am lacking in, I’ve got to tell you, it is taste in music and art and other great things in life,” McCain joked. “I’ve got to say that a lot of my taste in music stopped about the time I impacted a surface-to-air missile with my own airplane and never caught up again.”
