Wasn't there some late 50s early 60s movie with Christians in Roman times that did the cross in the dirt bit? I'm thinking maybe "Barrabas."

I thought it was "Ben Hur", but it was a long time ago. I suspect that the motif goes back to the first martyrologies.

And I was excited that Dear Leader noticed it.

I personally don't like the way these Republicans have hi-jacked this party and turned it into a party of War Monger, Wiretappers. They promote a police state with more prisons and cameras on every corner. The Republican led congress pissed all over our constitution. Thier platform of wiretapping, torture, domestic surveilence, is un American. How can you people not speak out on these isues.
I'm sorry but the Republican party has left me behind. I'm sick of thier lies and gutter politics. This year I will vote Democratic Party straight down the line. I hope they get wiped out nationwide. Then maybe they will start to listen to the people. Corporate sponsership and a corrupt media friendly to your agenda worked for a while but the game is losing its edge.

kim

Don't worry, the Constitution is on some sort of oiled paper; piss rolls off, like the pusillanimous screeds of the propagandized.

Democrats have been in charge of Congress for the last 2 years. Ask yourself why nothing changed.

It would never occur to these trolls that maybe McCain didn't recount the incident back when it would get the guard killed.
Thanks to the Dems, the Vietcong were still in charge, the guards life was in danger if this was revealed.

Sue

bad,

Long enough to type the word.

Hey Sue, congrats on the link to Insty!!

John

The Democrats that want change are faced with obstruction from Repubs and Centrist Dems in the leadership. Both parties should have moved to impeach Bush. The Republicans should have shown a willingness to clean the corruption up. They don't even want to discuss the crimes of this president, and they are numerous. He is a war criminal. That is apparent no matter what party you belong to. We are all Americans and our constitution is our Freedom. Tell the President to quit destroying our Bill of Rights. Stand up for the Constitution instead of your Party. Republicans hate our constitution? I not then start helping the rest of us defend it.

bad

Well, no, not really.

Barry?? Is that you?

Sue

Centrist dems are now being blamed, along with republicans, for democrats not changing laws that ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Which, when you think about it, goes along with Obama blaming McCain for making Obama a celebrity. ::grin::

Re: The Cross in Vietnam. Confederate Yankee has this:

Jeremiah Denton Must be Lying, Too

Denton was another U.S Navy pilot shot down in Vietnam, a contemporary of McCain's in the same brutal North Vietnamese prisons ... and also the beneficiary of surprising Christian compassion from the North Vietnamese:

Denton also found strength in his fellow captives. The Americans were forbidden to communicate with each other. But that didn't stop them. They communicated in Morse code and other number-based codes they devised and transmitted through blinks, coughs, sneezes, taps on the wall and even sweeps of a broom.

"I experienced what I couldn't imagine human nature was capable of," Denton said. "I witnessed what my comrades could rise to. Self-discipline, compassion, a realization there is a God."

He also experienced periodic compassion from the North Vietnamese. Sometimes the guards would weep as they tortured him.

One experience, he will never forget. Denton kept a cross, fashioned out of broom straws, hidden in a propaganda booklet in his cell. The cross was a gift from another prisoner. When a guard found the cross, he shredded it. Spat on it. Struck Denton in the face. Threw what was left of the cross on the floor and ground his heel into it.

"It was the only thing I owned," Denton said.

Later, when Denton returned to his cell, he began to tear up the propaganda booklet. He felt a lump in the book. He opened it. "Inside there was another cross, made infinitely better than the other one my buddy had made," Denton said.

When the guard tore up the cross, two Vietnamese workers saw what happened and fashioned him a new cross. "They could have been tortured for what they did," Denton said.

I sure hope McCain's campaign reads JOM.The ideas and research on subjects is fantastic.

Thanks Glenda.

[OT] I just had a person call to complain about us running too many Obama ads. She wanted us to run more on McCain. I explained that people who pay for ads can have them promote anyone. She still objected. Not knowing what she was talking about, I had were point one out in the newspaper.

Oh, you mean an article, not an ad. She says "Ad? Article? What's the difference." A great deal, say I. No there isn't... "I've prescribed to the newspaper for 40 years..."

Well, you can't tell someone something they aren't prepared to hear. I'm a Democrat according to her, and she's not prepared to believe otherwise. She's canceled her "prescription" and promises to go up and down her street getting others to do the same.

She obviously doesn't read my editorials... ah... ads. [/OT]

Is 1971 early enough for John McCain to have told his cross in the dirt story to satisfy the naysayers?

Fellow POW: I Remember McCain Telling the "Cross in the Dirt" Story

... So I called Orson Swindle, a fellow POW who is campaigning for McCain, to ask him about it.

"I recall John telling that story when we first got together in 1971, when were talking about every conceivable thing that had ever happened to us when we were in prison" Swindle told me a few minutes ago. "Most of us had been kept apart or in small groups. Then, in 1970, they moved us into the big cell. And when we all got to see each other and talk to each other directly, instead of tapping through walls, we had 24 hours a day, seven days a week to talk to each other, and we shared stories. I vaguely recall that story being told, among other stories."

"I remember it from prison," Swindle continued. "There were several stories similar to that in which guards — a very few, I might add — showed compassion to the prisoners. It was rare, and I never met one, but some of the guys did."

OrionCA

"Shave and a haircut:six bits" or "Shave and a haircut:two bits"? is that what this election is devolving into? Sigh...

Google either phrase and you'll get tons of hits predating McCain's account. As it's been a *very* long time since haircuts were 25 cents it's likely that even if the jingle started as "two bits" inflation increased it to "six bits" early in McCain's lifetime.

As for the "sign of the cross" thing, entirely plausible. Even Nazi concentration camp guards were known to perform small acts of kindness when they could get away with it. Not all of them were souless monsters. The left is getting hysterically panicky, watching Obama's poll numbers plummet over the past month.

Kerry was "swiftboated", but Bush was "Fahrenheit 9/11ed". How come nobody ever mentions that??

Imagine if a nationally distributed major motion picture trashing Bill Clinton hit the theatres in the summer of '96. Liberals would burn down the theatres and the MSM would cheer them on. And do you think for a minute it would 've been shown at Cannes? With Keanu Reeves, Sean Lennon and Cameron Diaz giving their impressions of it on an episode of Access Hollywood?

Apparently the swiftboat vets were more believable than Michael Moore.

Jane

I think that's a pretty sharp point.

Ugh! I feel wounded Joeyass. A sharp point indeed. That John Kerry and Al Gore look pretty good to you, huh?

That could be because the Swiftboat vets told the truth.

====================================

Sara

This seems kind of dumb to me. I understand the outrage, but doesn't this give publicity to these cesspool blogs and defeat the whole purpose of getting them banned?

Via Hot Air:

Bill Donohue and the Catholic League have protested the choice of bloggers at the Democratic convention in Denver. Despite the list of bloggers having been public for almost three months, Donohue has suddenly discovered that Democratic bloggers have some explicit hostility to the Catholic Church, or are just extremists. Donohue wants the DNCC to disinvite them with a week to go before the start of the party in Denver:

“The list of credentialed blogs include radical sites like The Daily Kos. Worse are blogs that feature anti-Catholic and obscene material. The two most offensive are Bitch Ph.D. and Towleroad.

“On the home page of Bitch Ph.D. there is a picture of two children: one of them is shown flashing his middle finger. Today’s lead post, which was written August 17, is called ‘Jesus Christ.’ It begins with, ‘I’m a really crappy Catholic who hasn’t been to mass in ages because most parishes around here ‘will’ insist on being aggressively anti-abortion….’ The writer then objects to some children’s toys on the grounds that they are more offensive than desecrating the Eucharist. The toys are actually balloons that have been made to depict Jesus in various poses, including a crucified Christ; one of these images shows Jesus with a penis. Several who commented on this image made patently obscene comments.

“Towleroad describes itself as ‘A Site with Homosexual Tendencies.’ Accordingly, it shows men in jock straps and underwear. It also has a post on Pope Benedict XVI that takes him to task for wearing a cape with ermine. Some of those who commented on this described the pope in a vile and profane way.

“Both of these blogs should be cut immediately from the list of credentialed sites. Neither functions as a responsible media outlet and both offend Catholics, as well as others. To allow them access to the Democratic National Convention sends a message to Catholics they will not forget. We look for Leah Daughtry, CEO of the Convention, to nix them ASAP.”

I wonder what name will be picked to describe the blue collars who will carry McCain over the finish line? I liked 'Moral Majority' and 'Reagan Democrats'. I don't recall either Bush generating a new appellation.
