    You know, like the one where you actually have to be a Senator to vote on stuff?

    Yeah, I'm not going to get too upset about that one being used as an excuse for missing a vote.

    OMFG, DID YOU HEAR THAT OBAMA DIDN"T VOTE FOR MARTIN LUTHER KING TO GET A HOLIDAY? HE MUST HATE BLACK PEOPLE!

      You don't have to be "allowed to speak from the floor" or whatever in order to exercise leadership and good sense. The man may not have been elected til 2002, but that's no excuse for not making an issue of no-bid contracts, if conflict of interest is an issue.

      Doesn't take a floor speech.
