John McCain: Big Fat Liar

So, it turns out that John “Walnuts” McCain’s heartwarming “cross in the dirt” story from Sunday’s Saddleback Forum was stolen in toto from Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago.

But this is actually old news. Ol’ Walnuts has been riding Solzhenitsyn’s coattails for some time, it seems. McCain recounts the same story in his 2005 book Character is Destiny, which received a less than warm reception from the wingers at Free Republic. One freeper readily spotted and called bullshit on the Solzhenitsyn connection back then.

No wonder McCain is “reluctant” to talk about his Hanoi Hilton experiences. Every time he tries, he ends up lying about it.
