Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

John McCain in the News, Whom He Screws, What We Lose

Q: How is having John McCain for one's senator like having a venereal disease?

A: It's embarrassing to have the whole nation talking about either one of them.

You know, in just the past couple of weeks, McCain has brought more shame upon his constituents here in Arizona than just about any other representative to congress in recent history. For example, first there was his immigration GPA where Americans for Better Immigration gave him an "F" for failure.

Then, right on the heels of that, his McCain-Feingold Abomination reared its ugly head again and threatens to become an even bigger monstrosity. I blogged about that here and here.

Actually, everybody blogged about it. How could they not when its latest manifestation has been to threaten the possible regulation of blogs?

Now we have Michelle Malkin, Captain's Quarters, Democracy Project, and heck, even the New York Times all talking about McCain's questionable use of loopholes to avoid the consequences of his own McCain-Feingold Abomination while he rakes in the big bucks for his "Reform Institute."

"It's screaming hypocrisy, isn't it?" said Roy Schotland, a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and a critic of Mr. McCain's campaign finance legislation. "What he's doing is what he and his side are always screaming about, violating at least the spirit of the campaign finance laws."
Q: How is having John McCain for a senator like having a nasty case of clap?

A: They can both be the result of voters getting in bed with people of questionable morals.

Q: How is having John McCain for a senator different than having a nasty case of clap?

A: A good dose of anti-biotics is all you need to get rid of a nasty case of clap.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.

Addendum: From Captain's Quarters --
John McCain sold out to Charles Keating fourteen years ago in the S&L scandals, and rebranded himself as an outsider and a reformer, blaming the system rather than himself for his actions. It now appears that McCain isn't the Mr. Clean he's sold to Arizona voters.
[Emphasis mine.]

Gee, ya' think?

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW even more.
