Thursday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

See any articles today about John McCain breaking the campaign finance laws lately? I haven’t — and I’ve been looking. Next week, his campaign will have to file its FEC reports. Will the traditional media continue to give him a pass on this issue? If reporters actually report on McCain, the “Straight Talk” bus might not be as much fun. And, those barbecues at the ranch in Sedona might be off-limits.

It must be so hard to be a reporter covering a presidential candidate like McCain. They all know they’re dealing with an unstable, volatile candidate. Maybe, the reporters are actually afraid of McCain.

Anyway, get cranking….

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire.

He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
