Last night around 10 I see that McCain missed the vote on the economic stimulus package.
Instantly incensed, what do I do? I turn to blog. Why? I have no co-workers, I have there is no water cooler, I feel compelled to rant to someone, and my husband can only take so much. So I subject my six readers to yet ANOTHER political rant.
A vote either way would have hurt McCain's chances to become Commander and Chief. He would have alienated this 'conservative base' he is allegedly trying to woo if he had voted for the package- or given fuel to the democrats looking for handouts if he had voted against the package, which would impact the general election.
Any vote would harm his career so what did he do?
He didn't show up.
Are we surprised John McCain decided to do what was best for John McCain and not what was best for the country? What do Senators get paid to do?

Am I the only one obsessed with this? I'm feeling somewhat pathetic for my passion for politics. I've got to start watching more E!.
