Election 2008 McCain Politics Scandal-mongering

And they were worried about Mitt Romney…

So, John McCain was almost a polygamist:

Although McCain suggested in his autobiography that months passed between his divorce and remarriage, the divorce was granted April 2, 1980, and he wed Hensley in a private ceremony five weeks later. McCain obtained an Arizona marriage license on March 6, 1980, while still legally married to his first wife.

There’s no larger point I’m trying to make about this.  You can be a scumbag and still be a good president. (See Clinton, Bill).  But as John McCain wants to make this election about character instead of issues (probably because most of his stands on issues are unpopular – and on virtually no issues can he appease both the Republican base and the general electorate) tawdry details like this becomes more relevant.
