  •  Bet ya McCain will just skip the vote (0+ / 0-)
    That's his new M.O. All talk NO walk ... Especially if there is a conquence!
    •  Actually it's not his NEW MO (1+ / 0-)

      It's his longtime MO, at least in the last few years. He has almost a 60% absentee vote record in the current session and it seems to keep growing. It first hit my radar back in January when I was researching a story I was doing about Dennis! Kucinich. One of his primary opponents was accusing him of being a "part-time congressman" and I was checking to see how true that was (not very). I pulled up the voting record of every senator and congressman who had been running at any point and as stunned to see that McCain apparently thinks he doesn't have to report for work anymore. He had the worst record of anyone. (Dennis! actually had the best record.)              When I did more digging, I learned that unlike Hillary and Obama, for instance, who were returning to DC for key votes, McCain seemed to be deliberately missing those votes, as if he were afraid to put himself on record. What a coward.

      We're retiring Steve LaTourette (R-Family Values for You But Not for Me) and sending Judge Bill O'Neill to Congress from Ohio-14: http://www.oneill08.com/
