This near meltdown of our financial system and proposed Bush disaster of a bailout plan reminds me of an oldy but goody financial scandal of the late 1980s also brought to you by deregulation! The S&L scandal! And WHO was at the center of that, an infamous member of the Keating Five? Why Mr. Maverick himself, John McSame!
As John at TPM reminds us:
Let's face it. On major economy-imperiling financial scandals brought about by lax regulation and help from lobbyist-encrusted politicians, McCain really is the candidate of experience.
