Only the McCains know about war

"No one knows what war is like other than my family. Period."

McCain's daughter actually said this on the Today Show. As a former soldier, I find this disgraceful. Surely Palin's family knows a thing or two about war as her son will soon be deployed. I am guessing that the families of the over 4000 who have died in Iraq know what war is like. Or the families of those who never came back from Vietnam. I realize that McCain wants to play up his whole military image, but this is a slap in the face to anyone who has ever worn the uniform of our country. Meghan probably had to hear the POW stories of her father so much that she actually believes her family is the only one who has suffered due to war. And that's a pity because it demonstrates yet again how out of touch the McCains are with the rest of America.
