My friend keeps ranting about how he thinks McCain is a manchurian candidate because he was captured by the commies for seven years. He says that at the time he was captured that communist brainwashing and mind control experiments were being done on POW's with a main goal of creating manchurian candidates. He says that they had him for seven years and that if it was possible to create a manchurian candidate that he would likely be one. I personally think that while brainwashing in mild forms is possible I remain skeptical about manchurian candidates. He says crazy stuff like "he probably has a computer in his implanted in his head. I did notice that he has a funny habit of repeating words and phrases in a weird way. Wouldn't the military have a way to test returned POW's and determine if they have been "programmed" etc. Could someone separate the Science Fiction here from the Science Fact?
