Thanks for the memories



The Iconoclast observes the John McCain fund-raiser in Republicanville today by remembering when McCain wanted a federal investigation of the millions shipped into "freeloaders" like Wal-Mart and Tyson to build XNA, the airport his jet will use today. Rich.

"The sloppiness of the FAA's decision-making process on this project has been disappointing," McCain complained after reviewing the investigation, noting that the auditors discovered "shortcomings" in the process the FAA used to award nearly $70 million in grants that the airport either had received or was due to receive. McCain charged that the project was allowed to take advantage of special bureaucratic shortcuts designed to speed funding only for "projects that would significantly enhance the capacity of the national airport system," and the remote cow pasture in Bill Clinton's home state hardly qualified.
