The Beating Of One's Own Breast Is Often Counterproductive

Little Dan rambles over at Still Spinnin' about the indictment of Rick Renzi in an Arizona land and money laundering scam. Renzi announced back in August that he wouldn't be seeking re-election.

Deibert details the indictment and then starts to imitate the lesser lights of Milwaukee's squawk brigade. That's when the real fun starts.
Hey, he’s from Arizona! Look for a front page NY Times story tomorrow about how some (anonymous) person told them 10 years ago that Rick Renzi had a drink with John McCain and how another (anonymous) person told them that Renzi voted for McCain. Then a former (anonymous) member of John McCain’s staff will admit that McCain talked with Renzi on the phone once. They won’t know about what, but I think it’s a good guess that McCain was in on this 2005 deal.

Now if Dan wasn't spending his time ramblin' it's a pretty fair chance that he'd have been able to find out that Renzi is one of the two dozen McCain co-chairs in Arizona. I don't know about talking on the phone or who Renzi votes for but I do know who he's associated with in the past.


  1. Is capper Graeme Zielinski?
    is grumps?
    Is ignats?
    Is Brew City Brawler?
    Somebody is very, very touchy about this.

  2. Don't know. All I know is that someone insignificant little worm is using Whallah for a personal agenda, and it won't be tolerated.

    btw: Mr. Zielinski does not have privileges at Whallah.

  3. OS-

    Apparently anony is Patrick, being all prissy about a poor job review or something.
