NBC Casts Ex-POW Arizona Politician as Murdering Cannibal.

Monday’s NBC psychic crime drama "Medium" featured a plot line in which an Arizona senator and former POW is discovered to be a two-time murderer and a cannibal. While it is safe to assume that the story was written before the Hollywood writers’ strike, and before the rise of John McCain to front-runner status for the GOP presidential nomination, the blatant use of McCain’s personal history, as a politician and Vietnam POW, as grist to feed the murderous plot is obvious.

Actually, I'm OK with annoying foreigners thinking President McCain is a murdering cannibal. It might just keep things quiet in the middle east for instance.
