Scrooge McCain's stocking stuffer

This little ditty from John McCain's flight home after voting on Christmas eve against expanding access to health care for the uninsured:
After voting against the Senate's health-care bill Thursday morning, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) caught a commercial flight bound for the Valley of the Sun, and along the way home, he was peppered by fellow passengers with a host of health-care-related questions.
McCain, sitting in a first-class aisle seat, was greeted by Phoenix-bound passengers on the US Airways flight who jokingly asked if he got what he wanted for Christmas. (The answer was no.)
One passenger asked if, as his Christmas gift, McCain could help legalize same-sex marriage. The senator laughed it off.
Ho, ho, ho, Senator McCain. Hope this marriage traditionalist remembered on Christmas to call his first wife -- the one he dumped after she was disfigured in a traffic accident while waiting for his return from Vietnam.
Along those lines, something McCain ought to file under "elections have consequences" -- it's an oldie but goodie:
