A.J. Dionne at the Washington Post is one of the few who thinks that, minus the sexual innuendos, the NY Times was onto a good story about McCain and the lobbyists.
Paul Sheehan, in an exhaustive and definitive fisking of the Times story, begs to differ. As does David Brooks, who points out McCain’s unusually exemplary record vis a vis lobbyists.
No, McCain hasn’t avoided them entirely. But for a member of Congress, he’s come about as close as it gets to treating like them lepers.
[ADDENDUM: Michael Kinsley has the definitive take on the subject].
