John McCain has a thing for Asian women? According to McCain advisor Marty Eisenstadt - himself more than a bit randy, that's the bombshell he drops in this final episode of "The Last Republican." I see that Marty got into hot water today with his post about Joe the Plumber at the Saturday Night Live afterparty at his site at:

Marty's become the Zelig of the campaign season. This is the man who tried to go boldly where no McCain surrogate had gone before in "The Last Republican", Part 10: Probing the Press. You'll just have to see if I hold up my own journalist credentials. It was a tough decision to use some of this footage, but I felt that the scoop I got at the end justifies the lengths I went to get it.

In this episode, Eisenstadt and his trusted aide Danny Sadler descend on the glitterati of Beverly Hills and keep finding McCain supporters in California. And just what exactly does Marty have in mind for me at the end of this long day? There's one more episode to come before the election, and ALL will be revealed.

This is my docu series I did for the BBC following Martin Eisenstadt, conservative blogger and McCain insider, as he stumps for McCain in LA. He's the guy who just leaked that Joe "The Plumber" is related to Charles Keating of Keating Five fame.

It being an election year, BBC asked me to do a piece on celebrity and politics and how they intersect here in the States. This was around the time that the McCain campaign was running an ad comparing Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. In pursuing my research, I contacted the pundit/blogger, Martin Eisenstadt, who first broke this story. I followed him for a day of campaigning when he visited Los Angeles. I quickly realized that Eisenstadt was my story. Already something of an internet mystery (he's been called a "fraud" and even worse) it turns out that in addition to being a blogger and a pundit, he's a McCain surrogate, a war profiteer and a bit of a randy bloke all around. Let's see if he gets under your skin as he got under mine.
