McCain Looks Into Putin's Eyes and Sees...A Campaign Donor!

John McCain Pals Around With Putin!
John McCain has apparently had a change of heart. Now he looks into Putin's eyes and sees a donor to his crumbling campaign. Seems that John McCain sent a letter to Russia's UN Ambassador asking for a $5,000 donation to his campaign...WOW, does this mean that John McCain pals around with Putin, is a Commie Sympathizer?

UNITED NATIONS - John McCain's U.S. presidential election campaign has solicited a financial contribution from an unlikely source -- Russia's U.N. envoy -- but a McCain spokesman said on Monday it was a mistake.

In the letter, McCain urged Russia's U.N. Ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, to contribute anywhere from $35 to $5,000 to help ensure McCain's victory over Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama, currently ahead in voter preference polls.

"If I have the honor of continuing to serve you, I make you this promise: We will always put America -- her strength, her ideals, her future -- before every other consideration," McCain assured Churkin.

Moscow's mission to the United Nations issued a terse statement on the Republican presidential candidate's letter, saying that the Russian government and its officials "do not finance political activity in foreign countries."
