Yes while my thread may have died a quick death the issue of McCain's dependence on Big Oil did not.
Link to the Video
"McCain heckled for accepting most money from Big Oil."
Last night during a townhall event in Missouri, John McCain was confronted by a protester who yelled out that he had accepted a half million dollars
this year from “big oil.” “That’s more than any other senator!” the protester said. “How can you be trusted?” (Raw Story has the video.)
Later, McCain was asked about this in a news conference. “I don’t know what he’s talking about. So I can’t respond,” McCain said. The Wall
Street Journal informs:
Indeed, McCain does lead all other senators, and all others who ran for president, in contributions from the oil and gas industry, according to
the Center for Responsive Politics’ analysis of federal data in the 2007-08 election cycle. McCain collected $724,000 through May.
Wow, has anyone else here ever seen a really really old dog. The ones with the mostly black incredibly glossy bulging eye balls and discolored dry
brittle hair? Now not to be too mean, but I SWEAR TO GOD McCain looks just like one of those dogs in this video. Did I mention the smell most fo those
Anyway, back on topic, looks like the Maverick McCain sold his rebel wings for some sweet oil cashola to finance his dying campaign. *sob* Enjoy.
