Girls, girls! You're BOTH pretty!

Senator Barack Obama (D-Rock Star) made the mistake of releasing to the press a letter he wrote to Senator John McCain (R-BushCo Monkey Boy) that was critical of the elder senator's method of pursuing congressional ethics reform. McCain cc'd the press on a little letter of his own:

"I would like to apologize to you for assuming that your private assurances to me regarding your desire to cooperate in our efforts to negotiate bipartisan lobbying reform legislation were sincere. . . . "I'm embarrassed to admit that after all these years in politics I failed to interpret your previous assurances as typical rhetorical gloss . . . "I understand how important the opportunity to lead your party's effort to exploit this issue must seem to a freshman Senator, and I hold no hard feelings over your earlier disingenuousness."


Someone's a little sensitive about their ethics reform bill!

The Chicago Sun-Times says "McCain noted that an ethics reform plan he introduced with two Democrats, Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, was evidence of his commitment to including 'members of both parties.'"

Well, that might be true, if he had really included 2 Democrats.

Seriously, Lieberman and Nelson??

The winner and first runner-up in the Senate Republican ass-kissing contest? That Lieberman and Nelson?

Oh, yeah, real bipartisan, McCain.

You know what? I am so tired of your "I'm the good Republican" act.

Oh, you're so beleagured, and you struggle so to maintain your integrity amid the partisan backstabbing and corruption.

Well, fuck you. If you can't stand up against BushCo, you can at least give us a bill with some fucking teeth in it.
