Not Just Burma

McCain's campaign staff/lobbyist buddies have a pretty solid track record supporting authoritarian, murderous regimes, Cliff Schecter discovers.

It turns out that they have friends in low places, however. I contacted David Donnelly, Director of Campaign Money Watch, for a comment, and what he had to say explains what his group is trying to accomplish:

John McCain ought to immediately fire three lobbyists — Charlie Black, Tom Loeffler, and Peter Madaigan -- whose lobbying for brutal dictators and foreign governments is every bit as bad as the two lobbyists who left his campaign over the weekend. Frankly, McCain’s campaign is turning out to be an effort of, by, and for these types of Washington influence peddlers. His credentials as a reformer are gone.

His field guide to McCain oppo research is on sale.

I've stopped watching the teevee. Is he on anymore?
