As I wrote recently, McCain just hired a Bush campaign worker with loads o' ties to DeLay and Rove. In fact, McCain's new pal Terry Nelson is named in DeLay's indictment as one of the participants in a money-laundering scheme.
McCain was on a call-in show and had the misfortune of dealing with an informed caller:
McCAIN: None of those charges are true.
CALLER: You don't believe what was actually written in the indictment from Texas?
Given that the caller's statements were 100% factual, the question I most associate with Bush's White House is now squarely on McCain's shoulders: lying, or just incompetent?
Disturbing bonus nugget: I can't even recall where I read it, but the idea was that Lieberman was angling for the second spot on McCain's presidential bid. That would explain two things-- why he's so eager to trash his own party on Fox News (i.e., courting the opposition's base), and why he's so clearly outraged at facing a Democratic challenger in this year's Senate race.
