  2. Yeah, McCain tried to opt-out but didn't understand his own law, the law that he helped write.

    Then his lawyer said that he's out of the system and that's that.

    Then the FEC got involved.

    Then he looked at five years of jail time.


    Then he read his own law.

    Now McCain's taking public financing.

    Now his athletic supporters say "How unfair! Oh! The vapors!"

    Even Campbell Brown, a CNN hack, can't tow the Obama party line all the time.

    "Brown quoted from former senator and Obama supporter Bob Kerrey to hint that Obama is a hypocrite: “On this issue today, former Senator Bob Kerrey, an Obama supporter, writes in The New York Post quote, 'A hypocrite is a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue, who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings, and that, it seems to me, is what we are doing now.'”

  4. Fair enough -- some commentator accuses Obama of being a hypocrite, according to some blog.

    Obama said that he would take public financing if his opponent did. Whether Obama's a hypocrite for opting out of public financing or not, McCain tried to opt out in violation of his own law. That's the reality. Now McCain's stuck with $85 million and not a penny more.

    Did Obama contradict himself? Sure. But then, so did McCain when he said he wasn't opting out, then he was opting out, then he wasn't.

    Yeah - with Bill Clinton stupidly looking at his feet at Obama's side.
