“Maverick” McCain votes 100% with Dubya

According to a new study, McCain voted 100% of the time in line with President Bush’s wishes in 2008, and 95% of the time in 2007. In the last 8 years, McCain only fell below 90% twice.

Unfortunately, one of the caveats of this study is that McCain misses so many votes in the senate (he was the most absent senator in 2008, beating even a senator who has been absent with a brain hemorrhage) it is hard to tell where McCain stands most of the time. But when he did bother to show up, he voted with Dubya 100% of the time.

No wonder some people call him McSame.  What I want to know is, why does the media keep calling him a maverick?
