McCain's Whining About Obama's Fundraising Success

So, lemme get this straight. John McCain, the co-author of our campaign finance laws (something he never takes credit for in front of his rallies...) is now complaining because Sen. Obama has had historic success raising money for his campaign? Not only is it kind of ridiculous - Obama's strategy is a direct outgrowth of the restrictions McCain-Feingold put on fundraising - using the McCain standard it would mean that the first person to "buy" a campaign would be George W. Bush, when he side-stepped the financing limits in the primaries in 2000 when he beat... John McCain.
