This is a cult and it isn't a secret one - it may be secretive but it is well known in D.C. and well connected.

It is amazing that we have our government officials members of a cult. And the loyalty of these government officials isn't to the country but to the cult.

I'm glad its becoming more widely known but with The Family's connections, I doubt anything will change.

Sounds to me like Coburn was advocating a payoff in return for silence.

Perhaps it isn't illegal for Coburn to have done that but it strikes me as unethical.

Republicans seem to suffer from selective morality while they preach to the rest of us and declare they are religious for political advantage.

Let's not forget that McCain is on record (video even) saying he would not support nuclear waste traveling through Arizona on it's way to Yucca Mountain.

But he's all for 40+ new nuclear plants generating a lot more waste.

McCain is all snide and says that Obama isn't ready to be commander in chief. Both McCain and Obama were interviewed by The Jerusalem Post when they visited Israel. The JP opens the article on Obama with an comparison of their interviews with Bush and McCain to Obama.

Anyone who reads this and concludes that McCain is the one to lead the country is sealing the continued decline of America to irrelevance in the world:

On McCain - looks to Lieberman for reassurance and they use the word "flummoxed"

"In March, on his whirlwind visit to Israel, Republican presidential nominee John McCain, one of whose primary strengths is said to be his intimate grasp of foreign affairs, chose to bring along Sen. Joe Lieberman to the interview our diplomatic correspondent Herb Keinon and I conducted with him, looked to Lieberman several times for reassurance on his answers and seemed a little flummoxed by a question relating to the nuances of settlement construction."

On Obama - knew persisely what he wanted to say about the most intricate issues

. . . spoke to The Jerusalem Post with only a single aide in his King David Hotel room, and that aide's sole contribution to the conversation was to suggest that the candidate and I switch seats so that our photographer would get better lighting for his pictures.

Several of Obama's Middle East advisers - including former Clinton special envoy Dennis Ross and ex-ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer - were hovering in the vicinity. But Obama, who was making only his second visit to Israel, knew precisely what he wanted to say about the most intricate issues confronting and concerning Israel, and expressed himself clearly, even stridently on key subjects

We don't hear about this. We get tire gauges and Britney and Paris. We are being ill served by our media.

Such a shame that John Von Schlicher isn't better informed. Many people assume that because McCain is a veteran and POW he automatically supports the troops and our veterans. And he wants you to believe that. As others here have posted, McCain's record tells another story.

Regarding presidential ambition, here's what McCain said in his book Worth The Fighting For, p. 373, published September 2002:

I didn't decide to run for president to start a national crusade for the political reforms I believed in or to run a campaign as if it were some grand act of patriotism. In truth, I wanted to be president because it had become my ambition to be president.

After the Keating 5 he thought all was lost but he used the press to rehabilitate his image and they created the myth of the straight talking maverick.
