What Kelly Sandler said was despicable.
However, I am far more pissed at Tom McInerney. Here is a guy who is a retired Air Force Lieutenant General who had the audacity to question John McCain's courage under extreme duress. What the f word is wrong with him?
As far as Sandler goes, she was probably just trying to impress her boss. This is the kind of crap we have come to expect from this White House, unfortunately.
All I can say as a member of the military/veteran community is McInerney should have known better and not gone there. And I am embarrassed McInerney is a part of the military/veteran community.
