McCain's MRAPs

This picture of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) touring an assembly line at defense contractor BAE Systems in West Chester, Ohio (near Cincinnati)

was the lead photograph on TownHall this evening.

BAE Systems makes the Army's Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles (MRAP's) -- vehicles that are too big and heavy to be of much use in Afganistan, where the Taliban are resurgent and projection of American force is most needed.
