“Was John McCain Brainwashed by his North Vietnamese Captors to Destroy this Nation?” No, he wasn’t.

The entire Vietnam Veterans Against McCain site seems so preposterous that I almost hope it’s a deliberate effort to generate a sympathy vote for McCain. I suspect, though, that it’s meant in earnest. What’s more, it’s so preposterous that it doesn’t even rise to the level of smear. If you were trying to think of damaging rumors to make up about McCain, you’d surely come up with something more plausible than this. Instead, the sad reality seems to be that some folks are unhinged enough to actually believe this kind of thing.
