McCain and the problems with guilt by association

McCain/Palin have embraced guilt by association. But as always they forget their own culpability in this area. And so we end up with the utterly stupid issue we see here. John McCain has named a lobbyist, William Timmons, to head his presidential transition team. Nothing much new right? McCain wishes to continue business as usual while claiming to try to "clean up Washington", why talk about that?

Well it seems that McCain did a poorer than usual job of checking his lobbyist for questionable connections. You see, William Timmons aided an influence effort on behalf of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to ease international sanctions against his regime. Really, this takes the freakin' cake, McCain is the one who was so gunho on taking out Saddam, he is the one saying Saddam contributed to 9/11, even though there was no evidence of that and still isn't. He is the one with a pro-Saddam connection. His team has a pro-Saddam lobbyist. WTF?!?!

Really, how morally bankrupt do you have to be to be a Republican Presidential Candidate? Is McCain trying to set a new bar? What do you think?
