During his service, Cunningham and his Radar Intercept Officer “Irish” Driscoll became the only Navy aces in the Vietnam War, flying an F-4 Phantom from aboard aircraft carriers, and recording five confirmed kills. He was one of the early graduates of the Navy’s TOPGUN school that taught dogfighting techniques to F-4 Phantom pilots and Radar Intercept Officers (RIOs).Considering his rather shaky political career and criminal bent, I would say his a perfect representative of today's GOP. General Clark is still catching shit over his 'non insult' to McBush. It's enough to make you scream.

A VP for McSame?
John Cole points out, quite correctly, that if being a jet jockey and a Vietnam vet is all you need to be President then a perfect VP for McCain would be our friend from California Randall "Duke" Cunningham.
