Editor:

If selling out to Joe Camel were an Olympic event, John McCain would win a gold medal. He hired tobacco lobbyist Charlie Black to be his senior adviser and now opposes FDA regulation of the tobacco industry after years of supporting it. Does McCain really believe that joining forces with big tobacco is compatible with protecting America, upholding moral values, and preserving the sanctity of life? If so, then why did he joke that cigarette exports to Iran were part of his plot to kill Iranian citizens?
