Economic Meltdown Primer

Many folks are slowly, drearily, waking up to see that John McCain is not an honorable man. I don't believe that he ever was. He was a smartass little brat when he was a kid, and grew into a petulant jerk by the time he went to Annapolis. His first dose of humility came after his fifth plane crash - this one being due to a SAM hitting his plane - which resulted in his being captured by the NVA and spending a few years in the Hanoi Hilton. That was a terrible thing for him, and one would hope that this lesson would have been painful enough to keep him from doing immoral things, like say, cheating on his handicapped wife with a rich heiress, or allowing himself to be corrupted by the likes of Phil Gramm or Charles Keating. Which brings us to the point of our current economic crisis.

Our current situation can be mostly blamed on people like former Senator Phil Gramm, and John McCain himself, who - like with his involvement with Charles Keating and the S&L scandal of the '80s - just doesn't know how to say no to dirty money.

John McCain is an immoral man. He can't help it. It's in his DNA.

For a primer on the current crisis, and how it directly relates to the S&L scandal of the '80s, and John McCain's involvement in both, check out Jim Moore's excellent post at HuffPo.
