This is a funny one

If you've been listening to him try to link Obama to the MacTwins.

If you stop to think about it, actually, pretty much when you hear McCain come up with a specific accusation against Obama, it works pretty well to just stop and see whether it applies better to McCain himself.


McCain's Top Staffers Were Paid by Freddie Mac until Last Month

in Newsweek has now revealed that McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, was receiving monthly $15,000 checks
until last month from Freddie Mac, the mortgage agency that the government recently took over.
In addition, the head of McCain's transition team, William Timmons, Sr., was a registered lobbyist for Freddie Mac
until this month according to an
on Bloomberg News. His firm received $260,000 this year for unspecified work.
Although McCain likes to rail against lobbyists and how he will put them in their place,
having his campaign being run by people who lobbied for Freddie Mac cuts to the heart of his pitch as a reformer.
This story is soon going to be all over the place (see for example,
the NY Times,
Roll Call).


(Though, as they say, I bet you'll be seeing more of this one)

  1. WHY why why isn't Obama's ad people putting THIS kind of info into their campaign ads??? Why aren't they shoving this kind of stuff right there in front of everybody for them to see? This is the kind of stuff that can't be ignored (I wouldn't think…).
