At the second day of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, an unknown and untested speaker took the stage as the keynote speaker for the event.  To many, this upstart 42 year old man with aspirations of becoming Senator came from out of nowhere.

I shut it off after 3 seconds - just propaganda.

Nazis and Commies are the best at propaganda. I think Obama and ilk have taken advance training in marketing and propaganda in order to push him into the spotlight. They are good but failed to hide his real ID. In a free country we can get all the information we need to make informed voting decisions. The press really isn't needed anymore, thank God...

McCain was one of the "Keating Five," congressmen investigated on ethics charges for strenuously helping convicted racketeer Charles Keating after he gave them large campaign contributions and vacation trips.

Charles Keating was convicted of racketeering and fraud in both state and federal court after his Lincoln Savings & Loan collapsed, costing the taxpayers $3.4 billion. His convictions were overturned on technicalities; for example, the federal conviction was overturned because jurors had heard about his state conviction, and his state charges because Judge Lance Ito (yes, that judge) screwed up jury instructions. Neither court cleared him, and he faces new trials in both courts.)

Though he was not convicted of anything, McCain intervened on behalf of Charles Keating after Keating gave McCain at least $112,00 in contributions. In the mid-1980s, McCain made at least 9 trips on Keating's airplanes, and 3 of those were to Keating's luxurious retreat in the Bahamas. McCain's wife and father-in-law also were the largest investors (at $350,000) in a Keating shopping center; the Phoenix New Times called it a "sweetheart deal."
