He’s number one, and AWOL

The defense of John Kerry to his rating as the Senate’s number one liberal based on his 2003 voting record seems to be that the rating is skewed by the number of votes that he missed. Today’s Boston Herald has a serious article on Kerry’s Senate attendance record: “Kerry not on roll with voting.”
The Herald reports: “During his run for the presidency, Kerry has missed every one of the 22 roll call votes in the Senate this year and was absent for 292, or 64 percent of the roll call votes last year, according to a Herald review of Senate records.” Isn’t this one Bush campaign commercial that writes itself?
UPDATE: Sean Hackbarth of The American Mind has collected a good set of links to current items on Kerry in “Kerry’s House of Ketchup #2” and “Kerry’s House of Ketchup #1.”
