Another one of McCain's very good friends

Since it's apparently fair to judge Obama on everything Jeremiah Wright has said, it should be fair to question the other candidates on their associates, too. We've been over McCain's overt courting of nutballs like Pat Robertson and John Hagee, but here's another one.

G. Gordon Liddy. You remember him? The Watergate burglar who was convicted and served time in prison over that and came out even crazier than he was when he went in? It appears our straight talkin' maverick has close ties with the former Nixon thug. To the point of being a guest on Liddy's radio show and Liddy has hosted a fund-raiser for him.

Since Obama is being questioned over and over about the incendiary things Wright has said, in fairness we should ask whether McCain agrees with these statements by Liddy regarding his admiration for Adolf Hitler:

" assemblies where the national anthem is played I must suppress the urge to snap out my right arm."

"Hitler's sheer animal confidence and power of will (entranced me). He sent an electric current through my body."

So if McCain hasn't disavowed Liddy and given his money back can we assume McCain agrees with those sentiments?
