Another glimpse into the Bush White House is being offered by an unlikely source. Bob Ney is coming close to claiming that he was a political prisoner. Even more outrageous and alarming is his claim that the administration has been provoking Iran and going out of its way to avoid peace. See this article from TPM.
Thanks to the 22nd amendment we can have some hope that this sort of "bloodsport" politics will soon be over. But will McCain continue Bush's legacy? I'm not even that concerned about Ney in prison. What we need to know is if McCain is going to continue suppressing intelligence and avoiding diplomacy in an effort to provoke another war.
I think stuff like this could convince scores of conservatives to vote for Obama. Hopefully someone in the media can get McCain's response to the story on record and Obama can get a lot of play out of this.
