I did not know this:

Raised Episcopalian, McCain now attends a Baptist megachurch in Phoenix. But he has not been baptized and rarely talks of his faith in anything but the broadest terms or as it relates to how it enabled him to survive 5½ years in captivity as a POW.

I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for this. Like how it was Mao’s Little Red Book and the films of Jane Fonda that helped John stay strong through 5½ years of special treatment in Vietnam. Or how he can’t be baptized anymore, because after partaking in Ho Chi Mihn’s secret Black Mass of Homo-Socialism 40 years ago, holy water causes John’s flesh to burst into flames. Or that it was a condition of one of his countless divorces. Or it goes against the Koran. There are any number of possible explanations for this behavior, and it would be the height of irresponsibility to go around wildly speculating about this.

… UPDATE: after consulting with esteemed political commentator Peggy Noonan, it turns out that it would be irresponsible not to. Please continue.
