A Noun, a Verb and a P.O.W.

Notwithstanding his claim that he "doesn't like to talk about" his service and captivity in Vietnam, because "there were real heroes over there," McCain and his campaign insert his heroic experience in that episode into everything, regardless of topic. "How dare you suggest that a former prisoner of war would..." etc.

They even got it into a rebuttal against an attack about him not knowing how many houses he owns.
(spokesman Brian Rogers) also added: "This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years -- in prison," referring to the prisoner of war camp that McCain was in during the Vietnam War.

So, in addition to the seven he owns in this country, that would make eight.

    Yeah but the question was how many he owned, not how many he lived in. Maybe I need to shut up now..
