    "Two of Sen. John McCain' campaign aides resigned this weekend after media reports brought to light their ties to a lobbying group that once represented the military junta of Burma, which the regime calls Myanmar."

    I am not surprised by this news in the least. Maybe the news media will finally get around to investigating the people that Senator McCain has associated with through the years.

    No doubt they will as they major media (other than FNC) has a liberal bias. But all candidates should be scrutinized from both parties as to where their interests and connections are concerned.

    it's more then simple associaton of people who work for you. With Obama and his pastor, he supported the church for the last 20 yrs, giving them $20,000. and calling the man his mentor, someone he learns from, he actually believes the junk his pastor preaches. And he's made other claims, like standing with and supporting muslims, not christians who he claims to be one of, but muslims.
