Chappaquiddick, anyone?

According to the Huffington Post:

For the past two months, a major American magazine and an allied news service have been engaged in a legal battle with the United States Navy over records that they believe show that John McCain once was involved in an automobile accident that injured or, perhaps, killed another individual.

Vanity Fair magazine and the National Security News Service claim to have knowledge “developed from first-hand sources” of a car crash that involved then-Lt. McCain at the main gate of a Virginia naval base in 1964, according to legal filings. The incident has been largely, if not entirely, kept from the public. And in documents suing the Navy to release pertinent information, lawyers for the NS News Service allege that a cover-up may be at play.

“Plaintiffs have also obtained documents showing that law enforcement officers were ordered back to the accident scene to retrieve personal physical effects. The Navy has never publicly acknowledged this information,” one document reads. “This request involves federal government activity, as it addresses what may be an attempt by the Navy to protect by concealment the involvement of a former Navy officer, sitting Senator and Presidential candidate in a serious incident involving the injury or death of another human being.”

Read the whole thing here.

This is all pretty plausible because, remember, McCain’s dad was a bigshot admiral and McCain himself was kind of a screwup frat boy. So, you know. It’s like that.

I’m starting to feel kinda sorry for poor John McCain. His campaign is unraveling like a Greek tragedy dipped in cheap acid. Everyone he’s ever loved has turned against him, including that Alaskan floozy to whom he handed the moon wrapped in pretty paper. Now she’s left him at the alter in favor of her own crazy-ass notion of a 2012 presidential bid. Meanwhile, Joe the Plumber is running his mouth as if he believes his own lies, like he really is some kind of amazing plumbing genius who can pull more than 250K a year out of his backdoor dime slot. Joe Six Pack has gone AWOL. Even McCain’s very favorite Joe, namely Lieberman, is pulling an et tu by going on record about Obama not being so bad after all. The RNC is considering pulling funding from his campaign in favor of less hopeless congressional elections. All he’s got left are the same raving batshit crazy assholes that crapped all over him and his whole family when he ran against Bush back in the 2000 primary. These are his people now. That’s it. They are the basket where his eggs currently reside.

I’ll have to express my sympathy in greater detail AFTER the election, though. Now’s not the time to go weak in the knees. I’ll be more comfortable feeling sorry for him on Nov. 5; win, lose or draw.

The suspense is killing me. Yeah, baby. As in: ouch.
