Recently, both a regional manager and the guy McCain tapped to run the GOP convention both stepped down because of lobbying they had done for Burma's vampire-state. Talk about bad timing.
At any rate, it appears that McCain is surrounded by this sort of thing, indeed, it appears an entire book could be written on McCain's chief political advisor, Charlie Black. He firm has been deeply involved in lobbying for the worst sorts of dictatorships and thugs. Mobutu Sese Seko, Jonas Savimbi, Siad Barre, Ferdinand Marcos and Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. You just can't make this stuff up.
