John Mc$ame is against "the old boys' network''?

Given the debacle at Lehman Brothers that is hitting high notes today, perhaps Huggy could have chosen his words and setting more carefully? The Miami Herald's Mary Ellen Klas and Beth Reinhard report, "Sitting behind McCain was former Gov. Jeb Bush, who was hired a year ago by Lehman Brothers as a financial consultant. As governor, Bush served on the three-member State Board of Administration that agreed to let the state's retirement fund buy a series of mortgage-backed securities from Lehman Brothers that turned out to be troubled." Then again, St. John's relationship with Phill Gramm would cause anyone paying attention to ponder his hubris. I've been paying attention. Finally, Team Mc$ame is finally backing off lies that Governor Palin is anti-earmark and is now forced to campaign, although botching the facts and figures, on merely a "she's reduced them" theme. Team Obama and a marginally effective press forced their retreat from those lies. Additionally, for Obama/Biden to directly take on the flaws of conservatism is another postive sign. Score on for the good guys! John Gunn

UPDATE ~ Sarah Palin and her surrogates haven't stopped lying or at least stretching however.
