By the Company We Keep

John McCain can't have it both ways-either he's the "original maverick" who "fought corruption in both parties" or he's Ralph Reed's cut-buddy. My mother frequently admonished me to be careful about who my friends were. "We are all," she said, "judged by the company we keep." I can't say that bit of wisdom always fell on welcoming teenage ears, but with time and maturity, I see that she was right. It begs the question-what is John McCain thinking, coming to Georgia to dine at a table set by none other than Ralph Reed?
