    Why is it relevant that they have endorsed McCain?

    Because I wanted to make the point that the article was published by a paper that supports the Republican candidate. Thus it is not a Democratic paper trying to whitewash the situation.

    And no it does not bother me that a paper/news organization supports a candidate. I see it as just an extension of their editorial department. I don't need the Dispatch's endorsement to ascertain their leaning. Nor do I give a dam that they endorsed XYZ. I'll makeup my own mind thank you very much.

    At the least one was a legitimate search.

    The Columbus Dispatch, which BTW has endorsed McCain, reported on Tuesday that an employee of Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services searched state records after consulting with the departments director. The director stated that it is SOP to check the "Support Enforcement Tracking System" to see if a person thrust into the public spotlight has to and is behind on any child support payments.

    Senator Roger Wicker Republican - Mississippi

    Well let's see now , Wicker was appointed Wicker in December 2007 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Trent Lott after Lott's white sheet slipped out of the closet.

    OK, Wicker wants to stop kids from getting violent games. But why should he stop there. Let him introduce a bill to stop anyone under 18 from shooting a real gun. That would go over real well in Mississippi.
