McCain Campaign Looks for Funding from Russia?

While we were the first ones to say that the Kremlin’s preferred candidate for the U.S. presidency was Sen. John McCain, this story is just ridiculous, prompting the Russian Mission to the UN to issue a statement reminding the world “that Russian officials, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian Government do not finance political activity in foreign countries.” Hmmm. I wonder how Viktor Yanukovych could afford to pay Rick Davis $35,000 a month. It seems natural that the campaign would assume that there was more swag to be had from Russia, but this looks like an honest mistake.
