I was wondering when Kenny boy might resurface. Now the man who refuses to say why he has given conflicting answers on his on sexual orientation is working for McCain:
From the Politico:
John McCain is getting much more than President Bush's endorsement and fundraising help for his campaign. He's getting Bush's staff.
It's no secret that Steve Schmidt, Bush's attack dog in the 2004 election, and Mark McKinnon, the president's media strategist, are performing similar functions for McCain now.
But other big-name Bushies are lining up to boost McCain, too.
Ken Mehlman, who ran Bush's 2004 campaign, is now serving as an unpaid, outside adviser to the Arizona Republican. Karl Rove, the president's top political hand since his Texas days, recently gave money to McCain and soon after had a private conversation with the senator. A top McCain adviser said both Mehlman and Rove are now informally advising the campaign. Rove refused to detail his conversation with McCain.
Steve Schmidt is the guy who handled the communications for the Republican Convention in 2004. He's the guy who tried to convince me that Ken had a long-term girlfriend. (Don't we all, girlfriend, don't we all.)
