This video clearly shows that.
I hope all of America has the opportunity to be reminded of
McCain's link's to this and his very poor judgment. He obviously
should not be anywhere near the White House.
Senator McCain left all of that behind.

McCain / Dinosaur DNA discovery



-- image: Creative Commons --

After analysing it, Dr Jarzembowski confirmed it was a fossil, and was "virtually indestructible" as it was preserved in flint, rather than chalk. He said it dated from the Cretaceous Period - between 145m and 65m years ago.

He said: "Quite simply it is priceless. I have shown it to other geologists and they are certain that it is absolutely a fossil. It's not a sculpture."

John Glenn isn't running for president. Isn't that what Redubs say when we bring up Palin?

In addition, the website says that "the Keating scandal is eerily similar to today's credit crisis, where a lack of regulation and cozy relationships between the financial industry and Congress has allowed to the banks to make risky loans and profit by bending the rules."

Wrong.. The Keating scandal was caused by a lack of regulation, the current scandal is caused by providing to much capital to special governmental entitlements that Mae/Mac had, while over regulating the rest of the financial industry. The collapse took place when the government put into place socialism, (not the free market) by having the government buy up notes and debt encouraged by greed.
WRONG. Deeply involved in the current financial crisis is deregulation.
I thought this was informative... "Deregulation and the Financial Crisis"
Robert Weissman: Deregulation and the Financial Crisis

SO, the Keating scandal had to do with lack of regulation, so did the current crisis and NOW McCain wants more of that AND he wants to regulate the Health Care INdustry??!?!?!?! ARe his supporters INSANE?!?!
