McCain’s Guilt By Association

With just days to go before election day, McCain and his allies have taken a course that we all saw coming; emptying the mud shotgun at Obama in the hopes of getting something, anything to stick.  The none too subtle implication being that even after a grueling two year presidential campaign, somehow Obama still hasn’t been vetted enough.

The ironic twist here is, could Obama be more vetted than either John McCain or Sarah Palin?

To his credit, one of the reasons why Obama’s opponents have not been so ruthlessly vetted is primarily because on the overarching theme of his presidential bid, Obama has kept his promise.  He has not sunk to the depths of mud-slinging, and he has not, like McCain, clung to blatantly ludicrous charges and implications in the hopes of sinking McCain’s campaign.

But this does not change the fact that there are skeletons in the McCain/Palin closet that are worth mentioning, even as McCain attempts to yet again stick Obama with guilt by association with a person whom he himself tossed half a million dollars to (note: If this election season taught us anything, it should be to never accept money from a John McCain headed organization; doing so will only ensure getting stabbed in the back at some future date).

For instance there is the government cover up surrounding a car accident McCain was involved in back in the sixties in which a fatality may have occurred.  Now, I admitted when I first wrote about this, that this may be weak tea, but not the interesting story that Cernig has dug up.

My old friend from the Newshoggers has just posted a very interesting story about the close ties between John McCain and Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili, a bond far closer than anything Obama had with either Ayers or Khalidi.  On the surface this may not seem like such a big deal, what with the Russian-Georgian incident that occurred not too long ago, and obviously McCain is not attempting to hide his association what with the “We are all Georgians,” line.

But it would seem that Saakashvili is anything but a kindly democratic ruler.  In fact he may be guilty of war crimes including ordering the murder of hundreds of civilians.

So John McCain went jetskiing with a man who ordered tanks to fire into civilian basements where civilians are known to hide during a time of military action, and yet he wants to know about someone Obama may have shaken hands with at a going away party?  Are you kidding me?

Seriously, go read all of Cernig’s post; it’s a wonder that the media hasn’t made a big deal out of this.

    Let’s not forget that McCain also had what he described as a “friendly” meeting with Chile’s former brutal dictator, Augusto Pinochet. Lest we forget, Pinochet is actually responsible for the mass murder of thousands as well as large scale human rights abuses.

    Why does the media cover Ayers but not McCain’s palling around with a real mass murderer?
