The McCain Gambling Story

Two really quick thoughts on the NYT article about McCain and gambling.

(1) Wes Gullett, one of the key lobbyists in the article, is an old gambling buddy of John McCain.

(2) Every conservative who does not trust the federal government should read that article because it shows in no uncertain terms that John McCain is a creature of the federal government and that he's very comfortable with expanding its power, oftentimes in arbitrary fashion.
