Transcription by Jay Farrington and Paul Hawley

Kall: Great to have you with us here on the Rob Kall Show at 1360 AM.

Butler: Thank you.

Kall: It's interesting; I've had a couple of emails. Now you wrote this article, "Why I won't Vote for John McCain" and you talk about your experience having been a POW for eight years, huh?

Butler: Yes, that's right.

Kall: Oh! I'll bet you know exactly how many days after eight years it was, too.

Butler: Well, two thousand eight hundred and fifty five days and nights--as a POW.

Kall: Oh my God, it's hard to imagine; it's mind boggling; thank you for your service!

You know, a couple of people have said, "This guy's doing to John McCain what John Kerry had done to him by the 'Swiftboaters'."

Butler: No, that's not true, because I think the swiftboaters got some preconceived lies that they were pushing about John Kerry's service; that he was not a bona fide veteran; his medals weren't real and so forth, and in my article that I've written here, Why I Won't Vote for John McCain, I say clearly that I respect John (McCain) and I respect his service as a naval officer and also as a POW.

Kall: Yeah, let me read what you wrote: "Senator John Sidney McCain III is a remarkable man who's made enormous personal achievement. He's a man that I'm proud to call a POW who returned with honor."

Butler: Absolutely.

Kall: So you're not any way like a Swiftboater; I just wanted to kind of clear that up right from the beginning.
