Green Does Become the Senator from McArizona...

I think someone's actually jealous of Obama at this point, as well as of Obama's $150,000,000 haul in September:

John McCain suggested that his Democratic rival Barack Obama’s record-shattering fundraising haul will lead to scandal in their presidential race and future races, and he hinted that there may already be funny business going on with Obama’s legions of small donors.

Obama announced Sunday morning that he pulled in $150 million in September, which McCain described on “Fox News Sunday” as “completely breaking whatever idea we had after Watergate to keep the cost and spending on campaigns under control. First time, first time since the Watergate scandal. And I can tell you this: that has unleashed now in presidential campaigns a new flood of spending that will then cause a scandal and then we will fix it again. But Sen. Obama has broken it.”
Talk about grasping at straws. He goes on to complain that Obama reversed his earlier pledge to take the public funding and the limits that imposed.

But Obama was smarter than that. He KNEW he couldn't win with those limits, knowing the dirty tricks the Republicans would be playing, and he knew the only way to fight back was with an essentially unlimited amount of money.

But for McDirty-Trick himself to complain? That's just grasping now. Or maybe gasping. As in for final breaths.

Of course, he also took to opportunity to defend his Robo-Calls:
McCain also defended his campaign’s controversial robocalls hitting Obama for his past association with former 1960s radical Bill Ayers, saying the calls are “legitimate and truthful” and “far different” than the robocalls attacking him during his failed bid for the GOP nomination in 2000.
And this after claiming, live, at a debate, in front of about 56 MILLION people, that he didn't care about some washed-up old terrorist... And it's funny how these calls are so "different" than the ones used against HIM in 2000...

John. Stop complaining and just finish the campaign gracefully. You haven't campaigned gracefully, or honestly, for that matter, up until now. Obama knew you wouldn't. Which is WHY he turned down public financing.
