What are the Republicans going to do now? They have selected their candidate – John McCain. Their candidate is now about to become engrossed in a sex scandal where he cheated on his wife with a Washington lobbyist – Vicki Iseman! Times Online has the story. [Of course you can always read The NY Times story too.] Here’s the first paragraph:
John McCain forced to deny romantic link with lobbyist
February 21, 2008
Tim Reid in Houston Tim Reid in Austin, Texas
John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, was last night romantically linked to a 40-year-old female political lobbyist and accused of granting her clients political favours.
UPDATE: Billyblog writes a great comment that has to be shared:
Matt asks: “How did we get to the point where sexual misadventures are practically the only thing that can sink a politician’s career?”
Well, could it be because “principled” politicians such as John McCain joined the dog pack to impeach Bill Clinton for his sexual peccadilloes? And you can look it up here. Oh yeah, right, it was for perjury and had nothing to do with sex.

Thanks Billyblog. John McCain, one of the infamous KEATING 5 – what a horrible scandal – voting for impeachment of a president over sex. A man who seems to have cheated on every wife he’s had and is giving out government favors to his lobbyist mistress. If the GOP doesn’t change nominees at the convention they’re going to lose in November…which is ok with me.
