But... Abramoff gave money to Obama too!

Here we feckin' go again....

Media Matters - MSNBC anchor Savidge baselessly asked, "[I]sn't [Obama] a bit of a liar?"
Summary: Addressing Democratic strategist Chris Kofinis, MSNBC anchor Martin Savidge said: "John McCain is claiming that he is also getting money from Big Oil. The question here is, [Sen. Barack] Obama's getting that same money, so isn't he a bit of a liar claiming McCain is the man guilty of getting Big Oil money?" In fact, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, Obama received $394,465 from the oil and gas industry as of July 28, while McCain received more than triple that amount: approximately $1.3 million.
