I guess McCain has a vestigial one:

But this being the silly season, the conversation drifted back where it would.  It was largely impenetrable, couched as it was in beltway conventionalism, but at one point it predictably wandered to the topic of what an honorable guy John McCain was.

At which point I had to inject that “honorable” wasn’t the first word I’d use to describe someone who came home after Vietnam, cheated on his handicapped wife and left her for a cheerleader beer heiress who could finance his political ambitions.  JPod scoffed and said that was a liberal interpretation of the facts, and how did I know what went on between two people.

I was actually about to give him that when Joe Klein interjected, “I’ve talked to McCain about what happened and he’s deeply ashamed of what he did to his first wife.”

I, for one, would find it comforting to think that after 4-8 years of continuing Dubya’s run of ruin, dysfunction, cronyism, corruption, and dirty tricks, that some day, years later, Former President McCain will be deeply ashamed of what he did to his country.
