And the Games Begin...

For McCain, Self-Confidence on Ethics Poses Its Own Risk

So, someone finally remembered McC's Lincoln Savings & Loan scandal back in the 90's.... He was one of the Keating five.

I have no memory of it (I was ten), but I have seen it mentioned so I looked it up a couple months ago.

The NYTimes brought it up, since they're pitching for Hillary. They also take him to task for banning soft money but then turning around and founding the Reform Institute, which he uses to promote his causes and hence, his career. Since it's not officialy affiliated to the GOP, it can accept unlimited donations, and it does.

McCain is not the official candidate yet, but he's as good as, the way the primaries are going. He's been THe candidate for a while now, he just can't say it until Huckabee resigns. Which is actually kind of a good thing for the Democrats, since McC can't really focus on them yet until he's official. He's started, though. But the Dem's allies have just fired right back with this piece. Let the games begin..
