Cindy McCain's Dirty Little Secret

As the right wing begins its election season hatchet job on Michell Obama, don't hold your breath waiting for the mainstream media to talk about Cindy McCain's little brush with the dark side. From Stephen Elliott at the Huffington Post:

"It's a psychedelic experience this week, watching Cindy McCain out on the campaign trail, attacking the opponent's wife. In rally after rally she says, "I've always been proud of my country," a not so subtle jab at Michelle Obama's gaffe earlier about really being proud of America for the first time.

"But Cindy McCain has one hell of a scandal in her past. In the mid-nineties she was addicted to prescription pain killers. Worse, she was stealing the drugs from the American Voluntary Medical Team, a third world relief organization she founded. Like most ridiculously rich people, she didn't have to go to jail for her crimes and was allowed to enter a rehab program rather than face criminal charges. The charity was shut down."
