  •  Except....McCain Used His Influence (0+ / 0-)

    ....to keep his wife out of jail.

    She became addicted to pain-killers. That could happen to anyone. But she had enough money to go to the best rehab center in the country. Instead, she used her position as head of a charity to force employees to give her fake prescriptions. Some of them lost their jobs, and the McCains tried to blame at least one of them for the mess.

    Did Cindy go to jail? No. Did she have her three small children taken away? No.

    Had she been poor, she would have been in jail and lost her kids, probably for good. But the McCain's are among the priviledged....and I think this is pertinenet, especially considering McCain's accusations of Obama being an elitist, McCain being a populist, a man of honor, a man of the people, etc. etc.
