The problem? …

… Common Cause, one of the biggest critics of big money in government - has given McCain the green light to do all the things the article criticizes him for doing, but you don’t find this out until the very end of the very long story … And while I can’t stand John McCain, Bush’s biggest defender of sending even more American troops to the Iraq quagmire, I’m not going to endorse crappy journalism in order to take McCain down. Some of us still have journalistic ethics.” Read the full story.
