McCain: Recession is really kind of a technical term

used by people who are economists and people who aren't married to $100 million heiresses.

But now McCain finally admits we might be in a recession, which perhaps explains why his campaign manager is cozying up to some big-time lobbyists.

yes, they're everywhere. we should perhaps just set them up as our government.

mark penn would be big improvement on karl rove, i'm sure.

hipparchia said...

and if karl rove really is advising mccain this go-round... steel cage death match!

we need some serious reform in campaign finance, and that's just for starters.

Michael said...

something like mccain-feingold?

McCain had better watch how he cusses out his wife. You know what they say: heir today, gone tomorrow.

Did you know his wife's father was convicted of liquor law violations? See the article from 2000 whimsically titled "Haunted by Spirits".

unfortunately, mccain-feingold is exactly what moderates and liberals have dancing in the forefronts of their memory banks when they see mccain.

The Hensley saga, meanwhile, swirls with bygone accounts of illicit booze, gambling, horse racing, deceit and crime. James Hensley embarked on his road to riches as a bootlegger.

almost makes me like the guy, or at least his father-in-law. almost.

thanks for that link. great article.

but the point is that john mccain is violating mccain-feingold. don't you think voters will find that interesting?

hipparchia said...

yes, he is violating mccain-feingold, and while i saw your point, and find mccain's violations verrry interesting, i'm not sanguine about it making much of splash with voters. or the media. especially the media. is there some way we can impeach them?

Michael said...

yes, we can impeach the media and should be doing so regularly. impeachment in this sense is like in a court where a witness is proven unreliable.
