The Company We Keep Helps Define Who We Are And What We Stand For

Let’s see… Barack Obama is surrounding himself with people like Joe Biden, Colin Powell, Warren Buffet and Madeline Albright.  While McCain has chosen Palin (a frightening right-wing, power-hungry extremist, standing in front of a 49 star American Flag on her own website), Nathan Sproul (under investigation for voter fraud, see below) and William Timmons (former aide to Saddam Hussein-I’m not kidding–see below). 

No one person can lead this country on their own.  It requires a team.  The choice should be obvious.  Read on…

“John McCain’s campaign has directed $175,000 to the firm of a Republican operative accused of massive voter registration fraud in several states.

According to campaign finance records, a joint committee of the McCain-Palin campaign, the RNC and the the California Republican Party, made a $175,000 payment to the group Lincoln Strategy in June for purposes of “registering voters.” The managing partner of that firm is Nathan Sproul, a renowned GOP operative who has been investigated on multiple occasions for suppressing Democratic voter turnout, throwing away registration forms and even spearheading efforts to get Ralph Nader on ballots to hinder the Democratic ticket.”

Don’t forget about McCain hiring Timmons, who previously aided Saddam Hussein:

“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.

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.”
