Greenville, S.C. -- Arizona Sen. John McCain refused to apologize yesterday for his use of a racial slur to condemn the North Vietnamese prison guards who tortured and held him captive during the war.

"I hate the gooks,'' McCain said yesterday in response to a question from reporters aboard his campaign bus. "I will hate them as long as I live.''

...

McCain made no apologies yesterday.

"I was referring to my prison guards,'' McCain said, "and I will continue to refer to them in language that might offend some people because of the beating and torture of my friends.''

...

"If people understood the context, they wouldn't be upset,'' Mike Murphy, a senior adviser to the campaign, said last night.

...

"I will call right now, my interrogator that tortured me, a g00k,'' McCain said. "(I can't believe that) anybody doesn't believe these interrogators and prison guards were cruel and sadistic people who deserve the worst appellations possible.''

McCain said he does not consider the comment an epithet.

"G00k,'' he said, ``is the kindest appellation I can give.''

Had you been a POW and been treated as he was you would not ave kind words for your tormenters either.

He is speaking of the prison guards who do indeed deserve it.

I can think of so many other words he could have used to express the appropriate level of disgust. Why a racial epithet that is offensive to *every* member of the race when he is only addressing a few?

LOL or a web server instance that buckled under the load. I followed the link from Drudge and you know what kind of traffic Drudge can generate.

There is no way you could even begin to understand the "appropriate level of disgust." The same can be said for myself and probably every member of this board.
