Sorry, more politics

2008-09-30 12:55:38.163416+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

From John McCain's remarks on the financial crisis:

...I will never, ever be a president who sits on the sidelines when this country faces a crisis. Some of you may have noticed, but it's not my style to simply "phone it in."

Four of the top five on this list are a very familiar looking bunch. The only one I don't recognize, D-SD Tim Johnson, apparently missed several months because of a brain hemorrhage on Dec 13th, 2006. No excuses for the other four though...

I find it amusing that neither McCain or Barak voted on the bailout.
