McCain campaign includes lobbyist for Saddam

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From Murray Waas, at HuffPo: "William Timmons, the Washington lobbyist who John McCain has named to head his presidential transition team, aided an influence effort on behalf of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to ease international sanctions against his regime.

As if it weren't bad enough that McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, was a lobbyist for Fannie and Freddie, and that various other lobbyists populate his staff.

Now it appears that one of his top people was an aider and enabler of Saddam Hussein.

  • It seems that McCain intended as of yesterday to bring up Ayers tonight.

    As much as I dislike the idea of Obama going too negative, it would be fun to watch McCain being faced with the choice of:

    1) denying it and risking being exposed as a liar (again)

    2) telling us that Saddam wasn't such a bad guy after all (palling around with terrorists)

    3) launching into a rambling Palinesque monologue while pissing himself
