The guy John McCain has chosen to manage his presidential transition was lobbying for Freddie Mac until this month.

And from McCain …

McCain has labeled Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae as prime culprits in creating the financial storm that has roiled Wall Street and Washington.

“At the center of the problem were the lobbyists, politicians, and bureaucrats who succeeded in persuading Congress and the administration to ignore the festering problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,” he said last week in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Honestly, I expect a lot of hypocrisy of all politicians, of both parties. But John McCain is really in a class of his own.
