John McCain’s surrogates have been out in force this week, garishly waving the POW card in America’s face again. This time they’re using it to defend against the Obama campaign’s assertion that John McCain is an out of touch, computer illiterate. A number of Republican political operatives — like Karl Rove, Ron Christie, and Cheri Jacobus — have all taken to the cable news shows to assail what they perceive to be attacks on McCain’s status as a war hero.

Their argument is that McCain can’t send emails because of injuries sustained as a result of his captivity in Vietnam. Accordingly, the implication that he’s “out of touch” because he can’t use a computer, is viewed as an assault on McCain’s war service. Source Article
