"Tainted" Resurrects Abramoff Scandal

DNC Blasts McCain, Reed Romance

The Democratic National Committee today released an ad attacking John McCain’s blooming friendship with Ralph Reed, the Evangelical leader and Congressional hopeful whom McCain helped take down during the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal. Reed had a long career with Abramoff, who bilked clients out of millions of dollars.

Despite McCain and Reed’s stormy past – and the fact that Reed may have backed McCain attack ads during the 2000 election – the Republican candidate’s been saddling up to right-wing Reed in what the DNC calls a “desperate to raise campaign cash to run more negative attack ads.” This ad, by the way, is called “Tainted.”

      Is this the same guy who has a gay adopted son he threw out of the family after the kid came out?

      Or should it be “Tainted Love” ?

      Sometimes I feel I’ve got to
      Run away I’ve got to
      Get away
      From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
      The love we share
      Seems to go nowhere
      And I’ve lost my light
      For I toss and turn I can’t sleep at night

      Once I ran to you (I ran)
      Now I’ll run from you
      This tainted love you’ve given
      I give you all a boy could give you
      Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
      Oh…tainted love
      Tainted love

      Now I know I’ve got to
      Run away I’ve got to
      Get away
      You don’t really want IT any more from me
      To make things right
      You need someone to hold you tight
      And you’LL think love is to pray
      But I’m sorry I don’t pray that way


      Don’t touch me please
      I cannot stand the way you tease
      I love you though you hurt me so
      Now I’m going to pack my things and go
      Tainted love, tainted love (x2)
      Touch me baby, tainted love (x2)
      Tainted love (x3)
