I’m a free-lance journalist and blogger, and I have a simple two-part question for the McCain campaign based on an assertion made by a John McCain ad where Barack Obama’s US Senate voting record is described as the most liberal record, and it is said in a way which implies that such a record is bad.
First, can the McCain campaign please identify at least five specific US Senate votes (with links preferably) that the McCain campaign considers extremely liberal? I don’t need a why, I just want the five specific votes.
Second, can the McCain campaign explain why such a liberal voting record is bad for America, and/or this Joe Plumber guy that you all keep speaking about?
I will be posting this letter, as well as any response, verbatim on my blog which can be found at http://www.manchicken.com and may be circulated to local papers in the Central Illinois area.
