National Journal Names Most Conservative Senators for 2010

According to a “comprehensive examination of 96 Senate votes taken in 2010, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., along with seven of his colleagues, voted most often on the conservative side,” National Journal reports.

McCain’s shift is emblematic of the Republican Party’s shift rightward and of the profound changes that NJ‘s latest Vote Ratings reveal in Congress.

    As far as McCain is concerned — his stance depends on how the wind is blowing. Chambliss — doesn’t have a moral bone in his body — what he did to Max Celand is unforgivable. The rest of them are all worthless clowns.

    Well, McCain pretends to be a “conservative” in the midterm elections but acts later like a clown in the U.S. Senate.
