Mr. Maverick Republican's True Colors

from Congressional Quarterly

In CQ’s calculation of party unity, which measures how often members vote with their party on bills where the parties split, McCain had the Senate’s highest presidential support score last year, 95 percent.  He  has averaged 89 percent since 2001.
Apparently Republicans are so doctrinaire that deviating 11% from the party gets you labeled a maverick. How pathetic.
