McCain Did Not Vote For Worst. President. Ever.

Posted by guest blogger, Sherman:

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee (who loves show tunes! his favorite is “I’m just a girl who can’t say no” from Oklahoma!) is trying to deny that he admitted that he did not vote for George Bush in the 2000 election.

However, staff members from the best presidency ever swear he told them just that at a dinner.
Josh Lyman and Toby Ziegler (in their real identities as Bradley Whitford and Richard Schiff) have confirmed what Arianna Huffington first reported and the Los Angeles Times confirmed – that McCain told people he was so upset about how unqualified Bush was to be President, that he did not vote for him.

Whitford said, someone asked McCain whether he had cast a vote in favor of Bush."He put his finger up to his lips, shook his head and mouthed, 'No way,'" Whitford said.Schiff remembered the conversation the same way. "My memory was he said pretty clearly, no, he did not vote for him," he said. "I discussed it with others afterwards. It was clear to everyone he said no.
