43. I said a version of this to an Obama supporter - you would have thought
I kicked his puppy

I said" Why would a candidate miss an important vote on Kyl-Lieberman, plead sickness, yet make it to the debate on the same day and the next day have a rally for 24,000 in NY?"

If you play the sick card - stay sick or drag your ass in for that vote."

The guy was stuttering he was so upset with the question.

Basically told me no-one pays attention to Kyl Lieberman bill, and that to miss a debate would be stupid.

Riiiiight.

The only thing stupid is how people who are so emotionally invested in their candidate cannot even listen to constructive criticism.

Couple that no-show with the Moveon ad vote no show and there's a problem here

Where's the leadership and accepting the responsibility that goes along with your job as a US Senator first and foremost? - you vote most often on controversial subjects you don't avoid votes and show up on the campaign trail blowing off votes that help voters make decisions about you
