Love And Kisses

I’ve been thinking about these shots of Phil Gramm and the McCain’s at the Citadel following the South Carolina primary victory in January.

To the extent there is truth to the rap about a “Bush third term,” I think you can see it here.  Having served McCain as a main economic adviser, and after calling the American people “a bunch of whiners” in a “mental recession,” the knowing looks and the kiss blowing are indicative of at least one thing: cronyism.
