“Suppose John McCain had been Joan McCain and Joan McCain had got captured, shot down and been a POW for eight years. [The media would ask], ‘What did you do wrong to get captured? What terrible things did you do while you were there as a captive for eight years?’” Steinem said, to laughter from the audience.
McCain was, in fact, a prisoner of war for around five-and-a-half years, during which time he was tortured repeatedly. Referring to his time in captivity, Steinem said with bewilderment, “I mean, hello? This is supposed to be a qualification to be president? I don’t think so.”
So Gloria, I guess a true qualification to be president is to blame your husband's blowjobs on a vast right wing conspiracy.
I'm not a big McCain fan but it's people like this and the NY Times who call attention to the fact that we can't let liberals win on anything.
