    In late 1989, Senator John McCain went home to Arizona to fight for his political life.

    It was at the height of the savings and loan scandal, and his dealings with Charles Keating, an Arizona high-flier whose failed thrift was a $2 billion debacle for taxpayers, were dominating the news in his home state.

    Mr. McCain faced a hail of hostile questions, even at the Mesa Rotary Club in bedrock Republican territory. After one of the club's elders rose to defend him and say he still believed in him, the senator mordantly observed, ''The fact that my supporters even feel they need to say these things is evidence of how serious the situation is.''

    ''It was certainly the most difficult experience in my political life,'' he now says about this tumultuous time. During a 14-month Senate ethics investigation that ended with his exoneration, he and four other senators stood accused of exerting improper influence by meeting with federal bank regulators on behalf of Mr. Keating, who had contributed $1.5 million to the political causes and campaigns of the senators, including $112,000 to Mr. McCain


    can you say exonerated?

    And he took a lot of heat for refusing to cave into pressure from those guys to favor them.

    Thats nice. He was exonerated. Obama had nothing to do with Ayer's actions when Obama was EIGHT years old. Its called guilt by association. If you want to say its ok, go for it, but don't whine when its thrown back in your face.

    And this has been covered many times now. Try not to make me repeat the same shit over and over again, eh?

    Back up. No one ever said BHO had anything to do with the Ayers bombings. What has been called into question is BHO's relationship with an admitted, unrepentant, terrorist bomber.

    And whats being called into question here is McCain's involvement in a scandal that caused thousands of elderly folks to lose their life savings and his friendship to one of the key members.

    As I said, the guilt by association train can work both ways.
