McCain Hasn't Voted Since April

According to Roll Call at the Washington Post, McCain has not shown up for tough votes, or ANY votes, since April. McCain has not voted in the Senate since April 8.Harry Reid said, "I should mention how glad my fellow Democrats and I were to have our nominee for president here to vote on these important bills. Senator Obama has come to work and taken tough stands. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Senator McCain," Reid groused. "Perhaps taking tough stands on important issues is not part of Senator McCain's campaign strategy. Perhaps he's just too busy on the campaign trail to do his day job."

McCain avoided controversy (and did not have to leave the campaign trail) by failing to vote on either cuts in Medicare reimbursement for physicians or warrantless wiretapping. McCain is now the No. 1 absentee in the Senate, and No. 2 (Tim Johnson of South Dakota) has the excuse of recovering from a brain hemorrhage. How would you like to have to be an Arizona taxpayer and pay this guy for nothing? Imagine what kind of President he'd be!
