Hypocrisy Redux

In the most hypocritical statement since, well since his wife's little ordeal, John Kerry calls on Bush to initiate a special session of Congress:

Kerry said Bush should immediately call a special session of Congress to implement the recommendations of the Sept. 11 commission, and he said he would interrupt his campaigning to be there for debate and voting "when necessary."

What a remarkable request coming from someone who only voted 17 times out of 163 opportunities in the last session for a whopping 10.4% ratio or whose running mate barely squeaks out 51% of the votes.

Of course, he qualifies this statement, saying he will vote "when necessary." Wouldn't you think that if it was "necessary" to call an immediate special session, that it would be "necessary" for him and his running mate to be there doing their jobs? You know, like he wants to force every other member of Congress to do?
