What Was John McCain Doing on a Yacht with a Conman, a K Street Lobbyist and a Hollywood Celebrity?

No, it's not a joke, although it does seem to be on us:

On Wednesday night, a little reporting about the real John McCain made it past the McCain campaign’s carpetbombing of lies against Barack Obama. Predictably, the story, which came from The Nation magazine and MSNBC’S “Rachel Maddow Show,” has otherwise been ignored by the corporate media since then:



Rick Davis is currently the CEO of the McCain campaign, but his real job is as a lobbyist for the K Street firm, Davis, Manafort & Freedman, which is the current formulation of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, which was founded 28 years ago by McCain senior adviser, Charlie Black, one of the originators of Republican the smear and slime attack method of politics that has been so wonderfully successful for the GOP and corporate America but that has driven the country into a ditch. The “Stone” in Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, is Roger Stone, the Southern Florida sleazy GOP operative who, for example, earlier this year launched an anti-Hillary Clinton website, with the acronym C.U.N.T.

One of Rick Davis’ more notable accomplishments is having successfully lobbied for the merger of shipping services DHL from Germany and Airborne Express from the United States in 2003. The merger put 8,000 Ohioans out of work:



Heckuva job, Rick!
