A Quick Clarification for Andrew Sullivan Readers

For Andrew Sullivan readers, a couple of quick clarifications about former POW and retired Col. John Dramesi:

He did write a memoir of his POW experience (reviewed here).

And he did make an unsuccessful run for Congress (as a Republican in New Jersey in 1982 -- the same year John McCain came to the House) in part based on his POW experience.

So on these measures at least, the contrast between Dramesi and McCain is not as black and white as Sullivan suggests.
