Make-Believe Maverick : Rolling Stone

I am not completely sold, but a very lengthy and eye-opening profile of McCain that suggests he has much more in common with the current President than we ever thought. His fellow POW's don't all think he is that great, either. John Dramesi, someone who was brutally tortured for trying to escape, and never uttered a word to his captors, is not a fan. Relating a story where the married McCain was looking forward to a cushy post in Rio for the women he could get:
Dramesi, who went on to serve as chief war planner for U.S. Air Forces in Europe and commander of a wing of the Strategic Air Command, was not surprised. "McCain says his life changed while he was in Vietnam, and he is now a different man," Dramesi says today. "But he's still the undisciplined, spoiled brat that he was when he went in."
