"none of these individuals served on the boat (Kerry) commanded"

I noticed that too. I wonder if Amazon has a policy of prefacing every review of their political-themed books with a quote from the other side's perspective. Well actually, I dont wonder.

Nope.

Look up:
Richard Clarke's,
Bob Woodward's,
John Dean's,
Kevin Phillips',
Bushwhacked,
Al Franken's or
Micheal Moore's books.

Amazon NEVER allowed any "opposing viewpoint" to lead off their Editorial Review especially OVER their own in-house review.

Amazon.com has just lost all my business and they will get an email furiously explaining just WHY I'll never order another product from them ever again!

My first thought was, hmm...I wonder if that's the real John McCain.

My second was, who else could it be?

John McCain, Publicity Whore At Large

Newt Gingrich also does reviews for Amazon.

Couldn't pretty much anyone sign in as JMcC and type that? Not that it makes it any better of course. Amazon is allowing that, and JMcC is a total piece of crap.

Well, they don't call him the Manchurian Candidate for nothing. His programmer must have sent him a signal.

What in the hell hapens to people when they become politicians. This guy is an admirals son. He flew missions against North Vietnam and did over 5 years as a POW. You'd think he'd resent anyone who made up stories to get medals and an early out. At least he could ask Kerry himself. I doubt he's even done that.

I think J.M. was a decent American a long time ago in a world long forgotten by both him & the rest of the country. However this is now & I find him as a repulsive vile country destroying p.o.s. I wish the commies would have saved us from this pinko fuckwad.

John McCain got a pass for his honorable service in Vietnam. It's been awhile since that pass has been expired, however.

If the AZ voters would do the rest of us the kind favor of removing this guy from office I would sure be appreciative... I'm starting to despise the turd more than Fineswine and Schumer.

No. It had to be an inside job in Amazon's editorial staff.

No one gets top billing above Amazon's own editorial reviews.

There is more to the story...

That comment by McCain was not directed at the book, but at a TV ad. Amazon is completely nuts for posting it as a book review.

They took it down after complaints were received (I was one of a bunch of folks who complained). Is it back up there again? I didn't see it on the first page anymore.
