Well this story definitely has a positive 'psychological' impact on me. Thank god McCain is not voting, at least for me because I disagree with his politics. For those who support him and feels he represents them, it must be a bit disappointing.

From a few another source:



The man almost never votes anymore: he once went five consecutive weeks without voting. Now we learn that he's the Senate's top absentee, passing Democratic Senator Tim Johnson of North Dakota, who suffered a brain hemorrhage in December 2006 and was unable to return to the Senate until last fall, in terms of votes missed. I guess it takes time to suggest doing nothing about America's economic crisis. link


A good point, how does he intend to offer us a "gas tax break' for the summer if he does not even go to work? How does he justify missing more wok than a man with a brain hemorrhage?
