Times Publishes Absurd McCain Smear, Ignores Obama Rumours

Now that he's the nominee, despite having endorsed him, the New York Times have let loose a hilariously inept attempt to smear Senator McCain.

In summary: In 1999, Senator McCain's aides felt that a lobbyist was being seen IN PUBLIC with the Senator too much.  They told her to back off.  McCain admitted, in private, that this was the right thing to do.

This is the sum total of the allegation, in fact.  However, the Times has tried to sex up the thing by lacing it with innuendo.  For example, they claim that McCain admitted to now-disgruntled aides that he behaved "inappropriately."  Notice the weasel-word.  The Times could have described their actual response, but instead they used a word which could have countless meanings in the hopes that people will grasp onto the worst possible interpretation.

The story is absurd on its face.  If a candidate for President was really having an affair, do you really think that people would notice because his mistress was showing up at TOO MANY FUNDRAISERS?  Ha.

And, apparently, the Times has been working on this story for months.  This is all they've got?  A good sign.

Hell, Larry Sinclair's allegations against Obama (warning: questionable content) that he did drugs with and had gay sex with Obama) are more credible than this nonsense.  Sinclair's even apparently agreed to take a polygraph.

The part of the 'smear' that isn't 'absurd' is McCain's intimate ties with lobbyists.

People (i.e. Americans, i.e., not you traitor-boy) are pretty sick of special interests running things.

It's one of the things that's hurting Hillary and now McCain is getting slapped with his reality, rather than his myth.
