McCain Playing The POW Card?

John McCain may have really stepped in it with this “can’t remember” stuff. Now his people are saying voters need to give him a break about it because he was a POW.

“This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years — in prison,” spokesman Brian Rogers told the Washington Post.

Aravosis loves it and is all over it:

McCain’s housing gaffe doesn’t matter because – are you ready? – he was a POW

Ben Smith at Politico has more including a warning that McCain may be overusing the POW card to his detrminent:

It does seem like they’re flirting with Giuliani/9/11 territory here, in which at subject that seems utterly immune to humor, used as a first resort, suddenly becomes a running joke among your political enemies and your late night comic friends.

Not only that, but people might put two and two together and figure his “gaffes” are a direct result of being a POW. This thing could begin to snowball on McCain.
