Oh C'mon; it's Only a Coincidence

There's no way this was by design, right?
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.
Tune in for next week's episode, in which a one-time actor turned governor of California and eventually cold war-winning President of the United States has a hobby of throwing puppies off cliffs and the only way he can be stopped is by the courage of the duo of a silver-spoon, Hawaiian born messianic figure and a weepy social fixer from Illinois Arkansas New York.
