How to Get Kicked Upstairs: Don't Show Up

Going from Senator to President would be considered a job promotion of sorts: I think we can all agree on that, left, right, and whatever.

When you are gunning for a promotion, it is expected that you show that you've been able to do your current job well. And if you haven't done it at all, well, that might fairly hurt your chances. We're still agreed on that, Donkeys and Elephants alike?

A Senator is expected to participate in the business of that august body, and regularly vote in its chambers. Part of the job description, you know: something that is simply essential to the basic performance of that work.

OK. Now, John McCain has failed to vote over the last five weeks at his current job--you know, in the Senate.

Well...would you promote him?

Our government: of the people, for the people, and by The Peter Principle.
