John McCain and the Mysterious POW Integrity Effect Time Lag

“The insinuation from the Obama campaign that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, cheated is outrageous,” [McCain campaign spokesperson Nicolle] Wallace said.

John McCain, former prisoner of war, cheated on his first wife. Repeatedly. While a former prisoner of war.

Apparently being a former POW magically turns one into a person of integrity.

But apparently it takes a pretty substantial chunk of time for this to happen: not only did McCain cheat on his first wife numerous times in the 1970s, but of course there's his Keating Five days in the 1980s, too.

Maybe a member of our supposedly liberal press corps could call up the McCain campaign, point out these facts, and ask just what the lag time is on the POW Integrity Effect.
