He’s running as a conservative in a party that touts “the sanctity of marriage” as one of their top issues. Therefore his having divorced his first wife because she was involved in a bad accident, and his having married his second wife, 17 years his junior, shortly thereafter, is relevant. John McCain likes to talk about he was a POW. He doesn’t like to talk as much about how he ditched his wife a few years after returning home. If we’re being asked to consider 8 more years of these people, and their morality, then it’s time we inquired about their morality. McCain would like us to remember the hero part, then forget the trophy bride part, even though they both happened around the same time. You get one, you get the other. And he was 42 years old at the time, so let’s stop excusing Republicans for their “youthful indiscretions” that happened about the time of menopause. The Bible doesn’t have a statute of limitations.
