A Million Tragedies

A MILLION TRAGEDIES….Ah, just what we need: a John McCain plagiarism scandal. And the material he plagiarized came from a fellow naval officer, no less. Excellent. Details here.

UPDATE: It turns out the plagiarist is actually the plagiaree! ThinkProgress regrets the error.

But jeez, McCain has been using these lines since 1995? For a guy who thinks war is such a tragedy, he sure does support a lot of them.
