Man of the People!!!

More than 60 present and former telecom lobbyists work for McCain's campaign as staffers and volunteers, some in high-echelon posts while on leave from their firms.

Bounds said McCain "has never taken legislative action on behalf of any special interest," including the Bells.

from today's SacBee.

Okay, he never has taken legislative action on behalf of any special interest. If all your advisors come from special interest groups and you work from their advice what the hell do you think you are doing? maybe, just maybe working on behalf of special interests. Just a guess. and even better these advisors are on leave from their regular posts. You think maybe it is a paid leave? Be fun to find out.

and this from the couple who is not an elitist, but can't remember how many homes they have--

"When I bought the first one, my husband, who is not a beach person, said, 'Oh, this is such a waste of money; the kids will never go,'” she told Vogue. “Then it got to the point where they used it so much I couldn't get in the place. So I bought another one.”


The McCains increased their budget for household employees from $184,000 in 2006 to $273,000 in 2007, according to John McCain’s tax returns.

That's right. The McCains pay $270,000 per year for butlers and maids--that's $50,000 more than the median value of an American home.


Yes, a man of the people. Gotta love it.

Hey, I needed an excuse to use my new icon.
