Bud Day...Yeah, I Heard McCain Tell The Cross In The Dirt Story In 1970/71

Col. Bud Day is a former POW and a recipient of the Medal of Honor. If you haven't heard of him take a few minutes to look him up. You remember all those "Cool Facts About Chuck Norris" jokes? Well, if you insert Bud Day's name in them, they aren't funny because they don't do justice to how tough and dedicated to the defense of our country the guy is.

John Miller of National Review Online talked to Col. Day and asked him about the story.

So I asked: When was the first time you heard McCain tell this story? His response: "I heard that story in 1970, 1971—back in that time frame. Anybody who says it's not true is full of..." Here he used some salty language.

Since this is Ace of Spades and not NRO I'll take a shot at filling in the missing word...shit. He's absolutely right, they are full of shit and blinding adoration for Obama but mostly...well actually my guess is the shit and adoration are equally mixed.

I debated whether this was a post or a headline but I think it's worth a post simply because assholes, like 2nd rate Kos diarist Andrew Sullivan, shouldn't have the loudest megaphones in this dust up.

I look forward to the appologies that are sure to flow from the leftards who were only 'asking questions'.
