Helping to unravel the financial crisis: McCain at the helm?
Let's hope not.
McCain was a central player in the last big government bailout: the Savings and Loan crisis of the late 80s. Here's some coverage of that issue from a paper in McCain's own Arizona.
Above, a picture of McCain celebrating his birthday with Charles Keating.
Repeat this phrase like a mantra: KEATING FIVE. Not only will it help congress guard against pitfalls in the process of unravelling our current financial crisis --- it will remind voters that it would be exceedingly difficult for McCain to help us through our current troubles when he is at the very center of the mindset which got us here (reckless deregulation).
