My class ran late last night, so I missed a big part of John McCain’s speech. You’ll have to help me out talking about it. It seemed anti-climactic compared to Sarah Palin’s, but it got moving when he told the story of his captivity–not the heroic part, but how he had been a selfish flyboy until his captivity; how at one point he had been broken by the torture (referring to his being forced to do a propaganda thing for his captors) and was ashamed; how his captivity–and his fellow prisoners–taught him to love his country and deny himself. THAT was good, a confession of brokenness at his time of glory.
But, again, I missed most of it. Give me your analysis.
