Think about this...
The other confirmed lobbyist John McCain has been in bed with besides Rupert Murdoch----Rick Renzi!

Renzi, the congressman who, back in 2006, McCain called "Arizona's workhorse," and said has "integrity beyond reproach," was indicted yesterday on 36 federal corruption charges.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop? Wondering if the yellow brick road will lead to another lobbyist --- Jack Abramoff?

Right around the same time McCain enthusiastically endorsed Renzi, Abramoff pled guilty to three counts of fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy to bribe public officials. Well, there are bribes and there are bribes---some bribes are delivered under the table, and others come in black silk camisoles.

Overall, from what we've seen, an elephant does a much better job of covering its tracks than anyone the Bush folks would endorse. Yet, there are those who say corruption, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder. That anyone claiming to go after special interests should be found to have some "special" interests of his own, and so easily, is alarming.

But, think about this. While I don't suggest making book on it, should Senator McCain be forced back to the bottom of the heap, who will lead the Republican ticket-----Mike Huckabee. And, a quick visit to Huckabee's Web site shows which faction, in the Republican Party, would benefit most from a MCain fall, and why.
