John McCain and "Freddie" Davis


This shot of Freddie Mac siphon, Rick Davis, taken at the RNC, shows the campaign strategist pointing things out to his "other client."  In contrast to the warm-and-fuzzy Rick and Mac image the NYT used in their background piece this morning, this shot reveals the take-no-prisoners "steel" (steal?) of the lobbyist.  As well, it catches McCain in the kind of passive-dependent expression that Davis's influence peddling is and was contingent on.

As McCain -- again, demonstrating his impulsivity and histrionic nature -- supposedly suspends his campaign to "save" the country from Wall Street, the stacked up archive of images like this one illustrates, by "virtue" of those advising him, illustrates ultimate conflict-of-interest.

Looks like someone made fun of little Ricky and now Johnny's finding out. If you want to stay in the good graces of the McCain campaign then ix-nay on the obby-lay fee talk. BTW, Ricky did plenty good by Fannie Mae as well as Freddie Mac. TPM reports a —

… former Fannie Mae spokesman who notes that Davis "didn't really do anything" for the money. "The value that he brought to the relationship was the closeness to Senator McCain and the possibility that Senator McCain was going to run for president again."

In this picture we see Ricky demonstrating his multimillion dollar skill, the ability to command the attention of Senator John S McCain, Republican from Arizona.
