Honorable men? I don't think so

Although Hillary has kept him from spending enough time going after McCain, Obama seems to have gained enough ground against her in the remaining states to start ignoring her increasingly shrill and desperate attacks against him. So today he finally started making a point of distinguishing between the McCain PR myth and the Real McCain.
Sen. Barack Obama said Saturday that the Republican presidential nominee in waiting, Sen. John McCain, has lobbyists as top aides and "many of them have been running their business on the campaign bus while they've been helping him."

The Democratic presidential hopeful also said McCain's health care plans reflect "the agenda of the drug and insurance lobbyists, who back his campaign and use money and influence to block real health care reform."

...He characterized them as "more of the same Bush health care policies that haven't worked in the past and won't work today."
"It's a tax break that doesn't guarantee coverage and doesn't make sure that health care is affordable for the working families who need it most," he said.
Obama broadened his criticism to McCain's ties to lobbyists in general, saying, "He takes their money and has put them [Charlie Black] in charge of his campaign."

I dob't know why, but this beautiful Judy Collins song, written by Stephen Sondheim in 1973 for the Broadway smash A Little Night Music, just reminded me of McCain and his Lobbyist Express today:

I am advocating that in light of the Senators little lobbyist scandal, we now refer to his bus as the Straight Cock Express.

Howie, THAT was spectacular. THANK YOU.

My prayer is we are doing something much less macabre in 8 years...

Is the Republican party so totally destroyed that John McCain is really their candidate? Send in the clowns...
