Wesley Clark Does Obama's Dirty Work

Retired General Wesley Clark appeared on CBS' Face the Nation and had the following to say about Republican Presidential candidate John McCain's military experience:
"Well, I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president"
Using the former General's reasoning, getting your PT boat sunk while you're at the helm would also not be a qualification to be president. That didn't stop JFK from using it to get elected, did it?

I'm a little surprised that he doesn't know that you don't "ride a fighter plane".  Also, John McCain flew an attack aircraft, an A-4E Skyhawk to be specific. If he flew a fighter, the nomenclature would begin with an "F" as in F-16 or F-22. I guess basic military knowledge is not a qualification to be a General -- or a failed Democrat Presidential candidate for that matter.

Needless to say, Clark was just doing the dirty work for B. H. Obama. That way Obama can make some vague comments about respecting military service and perpetuate the illusion that he is for "change". This is just regular old sleazy Chicago politics that Obama knows so well.
