Um, Hello? McCain Headquarters?

Posted by Phoenix Woman on August 17, 2008

You really might want to rethink having as your lead oppo-flinger a guy who, back in February and March, wrote articles for World Net Daily claiming that your guy, John Sidney McCain III, was linked both to Al-Qaida and the Mob.

Seriously — you only wish I were kidding.

From World Nut Daily, March 2, 2008:

Group tied to al-Qaida backs McCain for prez
‘They will do all they can to turn Kosovo into a
jihadist camp in the heart of Europe’

And from WND’s February 26, 2008, we have this:

McCain fortune traced to organized crime
Mob figures later implicated in Arizona savings and loan scandal

This is what you get when you put your trust in Jerome Corsi.

Back-ing And Forth-ing

This article on the possible role of pulp mills in biofuel production is interesting, but the discussion it’s generated is even more so.

So far, I think Fred Linn’s winning.
