Words from the ZENoasis for John McCain...

Dear John,

This is not a 'warning' per se: I just need to reassure myself of your fully-conscious decision announced April 3, 2007.

Was readin' the Tequila Treehouse, and a link to Media Matters goes to a story naming Fred Malek as finance co-chairman for the John McCain campaign.

Fred Malek...

The news that Fred Malek was announced to the post as fincance co-chairman for the John McCain “Danger Campaign” has aroused a certain ZENish reminiscence. Being a former Marriott Hotel employee, who's boss 'Seven times removed' (or so...) was Mr Malek, I have one sentence of advice for 'Dear John': stay away from any MARRIOTT Hotel!

I worked at that swanky hotel corporation's only ski area property (managed, not owned, by the chain), high within the Colorado mountains, during the years 1981-1984: the winters were profitable, fun and fast-paced at work. The summers were more relaxed, yet full of summer guests; a Hunter Thompson might say “somewhere between the sordidly banale Amway 'kill-sell-kill' conventions and the blue-haired and bad comics entourage attending President Ford conferences and golf tournaments.

End of dreamy reminiscence, except for one fact:

Remember that Bush the Lesser was once named to the Board of Directors of CaterAir, a Carlyle Group company now, that was sold to it by... the Marriott Corporation.

Bush Malek Marriott << >> Marriott Bush CaterAir Marriott... McCain?

Surely (Shirley?) there's no evil coming...
