Today’s Pictures: Black Panthers Our past coming on surface. Slate.com today’s pictures: 17 Magnum shots on Black Panthers. The greatest myth of our youth, when we (I mean the 60s-old) had the same age as the Panthers. Also in Italy, in the 68 movement we were in love with Angela Davies, now prominent in gender-and-race studies. Someone even fell in love for a young lady whose hair resembled Angela’s …
VEROFALSO: LA VOCE INFO
riprende la sua tradizionale contro-informazione fattuale in campagna elettorale. A cura di Michela Braga (collaborate!) un poco di dati contro le chiacchiere vanesie di Porta a Porta = la monnezza che puzza in TV, la trasmissione comico-demenziale del “patto con gli italiani”: tu mi voti, io porto i miei avvocati corruttori fuori dalla gatta. http://www.lavoce.info/articoli/pagina1000262.html

John McCain’s claim, his most convincing claim as an agent of change, is that he has been this foe of money and lobbyists and entrenched power and influence in Washington. And today’s story in the Washington Post following up on that showed that lobbyists were not only continuing in their lobbying positions on payrolls, in many cases, in running John McCain’s campaign on a shoe string, but also leading bundlers in raising money.

Zachary Coile “Mc Cain dodges bullet, faces fiscal bombshell”, S. Francisco Chronicle, 2008/02/23:
Mc Cain on Friday found himself defending his hiring of several lobbyists for his top campaign staff, including campaign manager Rick Davis, a former lobbyist who represented telecommunications firms, and senior adviser Charlie Black, whose lobbying firm has represented drug companies, automakers, oil companies and defense contractors, among others.

Ironically, the last time this charge was levied against McCain was in the 2000 campaign, when then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush portrayed McCain as hypocritical for leading the fight for campaign finance reform while raising money from lobbyists with interests before the Senate Commerce Committee, which he chaired.
