William Timmons, the Washington lobbyist who John McCain has named to head his presidential transition team, aided an influence effort on behalf of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to ease international sanctions against his regime.Let us review:
The two lobbyists who Timmons worked closely with over a five year period on the lobbying campaign later either pleaded guilty to or were convicted of federal criminal charges that they had acted as unregistered agents of Saddam Hussein's government.
The unethical, illegal and just gosh darn petty Sarah Palin has made a federal case about Obama's association with a guy who was a model citizen at the time they were palling around. Meanwhile, her political mentors were Alaskan Secessionists who hate the US. Also meanwhile, John McCain's associates helped out Saddam Hussein and his campaign staff is stacked full of lobbyists.
Once again, the truth is the exact opposite of what a Republican says. No wonder these guys are losing badly. You can't fool all of the people all of the time. I pity the some that are still fooled.
