It’s Good to be the King’s Court Jester



“Loan Titans Paid McCain Adviser Nearly $2 Million”

That’s right, John McCain’s Campaign Manager [Rick Davis] earned $2 million over five years lobbying for the very groups McCain is blaming for our recent financial “hiccup” (to quote my friend, Aielman.)

Senator John McCain’s campaign manager was paid more than $30,000 a month for five years as president of an advocacy group set up by the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to defend them against stricter regulations, current and former officials say.

This isn’t some tangential advisor or unpaid spokesperson for the McCain campaign. This is the guy running his show. I suppose the fact that Barack Obama one time met a guy from Fannie Mae for five minutes will make him just as guilty, once the right wing spinmeisters and many in the media get done with this story.

But that doesn’t make it true.

I’m just sayin’…
