Gramps McCain can’t remember his own votes

On McCain’s website, they feature this quote from him about the Iranian missile tests:

It’s my understanding that this missile test was conducted by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. This is the same organization that I voted to condemn as a terrorist organization when an amendment was on the floor of the United States Senate. Senator Obama refused to vote, called it a provocative step. The fact is this is a terrorist organization and should have been branded as such.

One problem with this attack is that the vote in question — the Kyl-Lieberman amendment — was missed by McCain (who has missed more votes than any other Senator).

When confronted, the McCain campaign admitted the error, but didn’t remove the quote from his website and  tried to deflect it by pointing out McCain’s “tough stance” against Iran. The problem with this argument is that the original statement also attacked Obama, claiming that he doesn’t think the Iranian Revolutionary Guard is a terrorist organization. But in March 2007, Obama sponsored legislation (S. 970) that would have designated them as a terrorist organization.

So in the end, McCain (who often attacks Obama for being “only words”) has no vote and no legislation. It is McCain who has only words, and his words are lies.
