Just How Crazy is John McCain?

Is John McCain as crazy as the proverbial s__thouse rat?

The Old Geezer, it seems, has been caught again. He recently claimed that his top aide, Rick Davis, severed all ties with failed mortgage company Freedie Mac a long time ago, going on to add, "...and I'll be glad to have his record examined by anybody who wants to look at it".

Well The New York Times took Senator McSame up on it and discovered - why Davis had been getting paid by Freddie Mac right up to last month, just before it cratered. Now the $15,000 a month wasn't going to Davis directly but to his firm Davis Manafort. However the only thing that FM seemed to be getting for its money from RD was access to JM.

McCain hasn't disputed the Times' claims. No, McGeezer is choosing to attack the NYT, instead. From The Guardian:

"Today the New York Times launched its latest attack on this campaign in its capacity as an Obama advocacy organization," the statement began.
It continued: "Therefore this 'report' from the New York Times must be evaluated in the context of its intent and purpose. It is a partisan attack falsely labelled as objective news. And its most serious allegations are based entirely on the claims of anonymous sources, a familiar yet regretful tactic for the paper."

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny - if you want to slam the Times, at least say what they're claiming isn't true. You gotta say they're lying because, if what they've reported is true, you and Rick Davis are the liars. With your campaign teetering on the edge of abyss, this is no time to cast yourself as a liar - unless, of course, that's all you've got left.

Seriously, John, you're beginning to sound unhinged. And, by the way, it doesn't help to have Davis skip his press lunch today.
