In Passing

There he goes again

Rep. Heath Shuler, D-NC, sponsor of the bipartisan immigration-enforcement bill known as the Save Act (H.R.4088), said this week that Sen. McCain was calling Republican House members in an attempt to block the discharge petition that would force a vote on the bill on the House floor. - Mark Krikorian
As Bill Quick says...

UPDATE 080329 17:49:  McCain advisor Steve Schmidt calls Shuler’s story “false,” the Krikorian post quoted above was later updated to reflect this.

Mickey Kaus reflects the thoughts of many:
...Shouldn't McCain at least have to take a position on the bill, if he's such a secure-the-borders-first man? ... Of course, the same reasons why McCain hasn't taken a position (e.g., he's not a secure-the-borders-first man, and he covets Latino votes) are the reasons people would think he'd want to block the bill from coming to a vote, no?
