the original survivor...

Does anybody else get the sense the North Vietnamese did John McCain a big favor by holding him captive for 5-1/2 years? Otherwise he'd've ended up a nobody who may or may not have have had his integrity questioned as an individual, rather than survive the ordeal with a plastic badge of "hero"ism pinned to his chest thus prompting him to pursue a higher profile career where the temptation to sell his soul for the mere placement to the proximity of power's pinnacle, the sad fuck?

And tell me again why surviving the ordeal of captivity and torture makes one a -- quote/unquote -- "hero?"
