Hypocrisy First

As evidenced by his unctuous lecturing of the media on deferencesexism, elitism, and a whole host of other topics, McCain Campaign spokesman Rick Davis might be one of the most venal human beings to walk the earth. Even still, it’s surprising to learn that Davis headed a lobbying group on behalf of Fannie/Freddie to ward off threatening “trends that would harm consumer access to the lowest-cost mortgage option” and those who might “spread unfounded fears about risks to the housing system.”

Yes, that’s the same Fannie/Freddie tgat John McCain misguidedly blames for the financial meltdown, even though by definition, a subprime loan is one that doesn’t meet Fannie/Freddie requirements.
