Just weeks away from a possible surprise victory in the primaries

For those intelligent enough to grasp it, that line says everything that need be said about the state of journalism these days.

No she didn’t order extra for herself.

She got prescriptions filled in the names of other staff members.

That is illegal - unless you’re married to a politician.

So what’s McCain trying to sneak thru before anybody finds out about this time? Didn’t the idiot learn his lesson on the shamnesty, or is that what he’s pushing again? And some people are considering this ass to lead this country- I don’t think so!

"editor Keller expressed serious reservations about journalism eithics and issuing a damaging story so close to an election"

LOL. As though such journalistic "ethics" gave anyone pause when they ran with the GWB story of a DWI just 4 days before the national election in 2000!!!!! No, a better read would be that the journalistic ethics of a leftist hack like Bill Keller would dictate that the NY Times first try to help McCain get the R. nomination, and THEN torpedo his candidacy shortly before the Nov. 2008 elections.

Just what we need, a candidate who owes his political life to the NY Slimes. The story seems to have been spiked and Drudge has gone into hiding from big bad Bennett.

Guess McCain can’t understand why the media (who he believed loved him), has betrayed him and revealed stuff about McCain which may or may not be true.

I’m not a McCain supporter so quite frankly, I don’t give a damn.

But .. it does show me that Hillary is terrified of him - and Clinton, Inc. is turning up the heat. That’s gratitude for ya .. after all the times McCain collaborated with Hillary or the dems on legislation.

“Rudy/Romney needs McCain’s supporters”

Can I play your game? Fred needs McCains supporters. Gee that was easy, all I have to do is make something up that I have no knowledge of. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander!

I do not trust McCain at all, I have not trusted him ever since he showed us how he holds a grudge. Now this picture of him smiling at Hillary is just too much, it makes me sick, why this man is even out of the single digits is beyond me. The Fred supporters are mad at the wrong candidate. They should stop fussing over Mitt and start raising hell about McCain, that would make more sense!

Then perhaps that explains why Fred supporters around here never mention a word about McCain, I bet they have already been chosen to be Fred’s delegates. Well, that would certainly explain alot!

Not sure what this is all about exactly.

But I know that of all the GOP candidates, McLame
is at the very BOTTOM of my list to support!

Woman lobbyist who allegedly wrote legislation before McCain’s committee.

And..., this is news how???

Get a grip on the real world, legislation is typically proposed by interest groups and presented by lobbyists. The proposed legislation is then forwarded to the federal agencies which would be impacted for comment and refinement!

Been there..., done that..., ad nauseum!

Not only that, but the DEA was after McCain’s wife for stealing drugs from her company. So McCain cut a deal with clinton, agreed to work with him, and clinton called off the dogs.

Not an admirable business. If she has reformed, all to the good. I’m not concerned about her faults; I’m concerned about McCain, because he’s the guy who is a senator and a presidential candidate—and a corrupt crook.

The only reason the NYT didn’t run this already was that they want to save it to hit him if he is the nominee.

Bump for Super Tuesday. Will the NY Times hammer McCain with this if and when he gets the nom? .

Dear Laissez-faire capitalist,

There are folks who were critical of this thread when it was originally posted, because they thought it unfairly besmirched Sen. McCain. If it turns out that the NY Times has been holding something on the Senator, and will now release it once he has the nomination sewn up, I wonder how those folks will then feel? I wonder how they will feel knowing that if whatever this is about had come out before Mr. McCain sewed up the nomination, he wouldn’t have gotten the nomination?

Can we all say “President H. Clinton”?
