McCain Campaign, where the truth goes to die.
It turns out that Cindy McCain may not have been completely honest about her suffering from the Limbaugh Syndrome... http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26671077/page/4/ And, yes, of course, I'm piling on. Attacking this poor little rich girl whose only sin was stealing drugs from the charity she presided over, lying about it, using other people to cover up her activities, lying about it, trying to escape responsibility and "spin" the story in a favorable way by having a "canned hunt" interview with handpicked news organizations, and lying to them about the legal status of her case, maliciously suing a former employee, and lying about it, allowing other people to be hurt by the fallout, doing "outreach" this election season by offering herself for interviews with selected media/entertainment personalities, and lying to them. Oh, dear, did I mention that she seems to have done a little LYING? All of this would be of no consequence, IF she wasn't married to the man who wants to be the "Leader of the Free World" (boy, is that a fucking misnomer). And you're saying, "But, but, she's not running for anything". Neither was Kitty Dukakis, Sara Edwards, Chelsea Clinton--shall I continue? The GOP is quite adept at demonizing and dehumanizing their opposition and has no compunction about dragging the spouses and families of their opponents through the muck--even if they have to create it themselves. Cindy McCain has stood by her lying husband through thick and thin; why wouldn't she? They are, after all, soulmates. I don't want to be hopeful, because it hurts when those hopes are dashed, but WaPo running this story tells me one of two things: They've finally woken up or they are counting on this piece to boost their circulation. démocommié™™™™™©®ç au courant
