Not Doing Your Job

Awhile back we heard all over the news how Obama had missed so many votes. It was interesting because they chose to only cover a certain period. Instead of being selective, I looked on the Internet to see who had missed the most votes in the current Congress (110th). Expecting it to be Obama, imagine my shock when I found out it was....................


According to the Washington Post who tracks these things, McCain has missed 63.8% of the votes in the current Congress. Ok, you say, surely Obama is second. Nope. In second place is Sen. Tim Johnson. What makes this tragic is that Johnson had a brain aneurysm and was unable to show up for work for several months. And that guy still showed up for more votes than McCain. If I remember correctly, as a taxpayer I am paying McCain's salary. It would be nice if he showed up for work once in awhile.

That's BS. This is why people hate politicians. If I wanted to run for office, I would have tot ake time off from my job. But if you're a career politician, you get paid to just keeping running for office.
