McCain: "Please sir - can I have some more?"

This weekend was quite the blow for McCain. First, Colin Powell announces his endorsement for Barack Obama. Then he learns that the Obama Campaign had raised $150 MM in donations. Then we find out that McCain has apparently send a Fundraising Letter to Vitaly Churkin, the Russian UN Ambassador, asking for a contribution to the McCain Victory Fund

This is really quite sad, McCain is reduced to begging campaign funds from the Russians! Naturally, the response back was a big "nyet"!
"Russia officials, the permanent mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian government do not finance political activity in foreign countries,'' Russia's mission to the UN said in a statement about the letter, which was addressed to Vitaly Churkin, the Russian ambassador.
So whatever happened to the "We are all Georgians now" ?? Did John McCain throw them under the bus in his quest for the Presidency?

Of course Presidential Campaigns are barred from accepting foreign contributions. If this was a mistake,it's one stupid mistake. How on earth could the Russian Ambassador's address have made it into a contributor database?
