…or at least that’s as far as Roger Simon got. TBogg notes his comparison of John McCain with Alec Guiness’ Colonel Nicholson in Bridge on the River Kwai:

But what is arguably a serious qualification for president is McCain’s behavior, his steadfastness, for five years in a North Vietnamese prison camp. It has overtones of The Bridge on the River Kwai. Although not as overtly heroic as the film, McCain showed character traits under extreme pressure – dealing with torture, standing with his men, etc., – that demonstrate superior leadership capability. What befits a president more than that?…

So… John McCain as Sir Alec Guinness…? Well, maybe that’s pushing things too far. Sir Alec gets my vote for one of the greatest actors of the Twentieth Century…. But it’s time for Wes Clark to review this song.

Indeed. I thought that the dark hints about John McCain’s “Machurian Candidate” POW history were intended as an attack, but it turns out I was wrong; apparently, wingnuts think that insane POW collaborators represent positive role models.
