Kevin Drum is incredulous that no one in the media is discussing the fact that John McCain has sheltered all of his assets behind his wife’s name:
Can we stop pretending to be children about this? There’s only one reason for a politician to make sure that all his assets are in his wife’s name: it’s to make sure that no one knows anything about his assets. It’s not as if McCain is the first pol to try this, after all.
Is the press really going to let him get away with this?
Kinda makes you wonder about that liberal media, doesn’t it? I mean, if the media really was all that liberal and in the tank with the Democrats, you would think by now impeachment proceedings would be under way for Bush. At the very least, a liberal media would not have spent the last 4 months painting Hillary Clinton as a castrating bitch and Barack Obama as a scary negro who hangs out with terrorists.
But then again, maybe the media is liberal and scheming, and they are just holding until things are boring in September and October to drop it on the McCain campaign then. If I were a paranoid conservative type, that would be my concern.
More than likely, the media will just ignore it, though- McCain has gotten a free ride with the press for so long it is just second nature. Cripes, go check out the Daily Howler (or his incomparable archives!) on any given day if you don’t believe me. Chances are, they won’t ask because they might miss out on some of that good BBQ action.
