Is John McCain pretending to be a) Rudy Giuliani or b) John Kerry? Either way, this irrelevant invocation of his POW status threatens, if it continues to be used in this fashion, to make him appear ridiculous. It's as bad as Giuliani's "9/11 will produce a better postal service/farm bill/trade agreement/" or Kerry's grim gawd-help-us "I'm a klutz and I'm reporting for duty" schtick.
From his latest appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno:
LENO: Welcome back, Sen. McCain, for one million dollars, how many houses do you have? (Jay laughs, McCain squirms and chuckles)
