MaxSpeak, You Listen!: I LOVE THE EIGHTIES

Max Sawicky loves the 1980s: >[MaxSpeak, You Listen!: I LOVE THE EIGHTIES](http://maxspeak.org/mt/archives/002682.html): Murtha is to Abscam as McCain is to the S&L scandal: After McCain's election to the House in 1982, he and his family made at least nine trips at Keating's expense, three of which were to Keating's Bahamas retreat. McCain did not disclose the trips (as he was required to under House rules) until the scandal broke in 1989. At that point, he paid Keating $13,433 for the flights. >We are confident that Republican 80s aficionados will give equal treatment to this affair. See also Doug Ireland and Reason.
