It is an interesting card for Senator McCain to play, given that his campaign manager, Rick Davis, was paid by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac several hundred thousand dollars early in this decade to head up an organization to lobby in their behalf called The Homeownership Alliance. ...
I worked in government relations for Fannie Mae for more than 20 years, leading the group for most of those years. When I see photographs of Sen. McCain's staff, it looks to me like the team of lobbyists who used to report to me. Senator McCain's attack on Senator Obama is a cheap shot, and hypocritical.

Lying sack o' shit
The McCain Campaign, being run by Karl Rove's acolytes is playing the usual method of the GOP, lying baldly and hoping to outrun the truth with their next lie. But they are particularly ham-handed. After lying about the connection of Obama and former Fannie Mae head Franklin Rains because of the "magical unified bond that exists between all black people", this stinging letter hits them between the eyes -- perhaps near the drooping left one of McCain [what's up with that btw?]:
