I heard some of the most infuriating words of the election, headed by Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty a bit ago on the XM Satellite radio POTUS ’08 channel. Â Luckily, I found another interview of the same…
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty did an interview with FOX News (imagine that!) where he was trying to downplay what Obama has done as a Senator. Â His quote, that really got me, was:
You’re right, Governor. Â That’s a no-brainer, right? Â Okay – so let’s investigate that bill. Â So a little search finds that was bill S.2566, then passed into H.6060. Â No brainer? Â Oh wait – what is this. Â It’s the list of co-sponsors. Â I found that with this link. Â Hmmm… That list of cosponsors is not that long. Â Oh, and it doesn’t list John McCain. Â Imagine that.
So “loose nukes legislation may be a no-brainer”, Governor Pawlenty, but if John McCain did not think enough of this bill to cosponsor it, where is the logic in that?
Now if I can just find the link with the roll-call vote, to see how McCain voted… UPDATE: Found the vote, but I believe McCain did not even show up to vote – now trying to find his schedule for December 2006.
