David Letterman's Revenge

After getting snubbed by McCain a few weeks ago, Letterman accepts his apology, then becomes the first major media personality to confront McCain about his relationship with Gordon Liddy, political criminal and mastermind of the Watergate break-in. Now, I wouldn't claim that either this or Obama's Ayers connection ought to have anything to do with the campaign, but it is does seem pretty hypocritical of McCain.

Nor is Gordon Liddy the only questionable acquaintance of McCain. One of his major supporters, Carl Lindner, was CEO of Chiquita when it began illegal protection payments to the AUC (a Colombian terrorist organization), and the district attorney of Medellin has called for him and other top executives to be extradited to Colombia to face criminal charges of financing terrorism.
