TriggerManI find it strange that McGay and others tend to respond, when they can't respond...with silly graphics. So be it.
I would think that others would want a response, a well reasoned response to a question that I may have raised. And they deserve as much.
What "question" did you raise? You made an assertion that is purely political and McGay's response takes, basically, the form of a political cartoon. (And images are part of the fun of the Internets.)
I don't know about Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi asking McCain to come to Washington to cast a vote. But I don't see that as the issue the OP has raised. The question is whether he can cast a vote and also engage in debate. Harry Reid explicitly said he does not believe the debate Friday should be postponed. He has also questioned the value of turning the bailout discussion into part of the presidential political process.
From the Hill:
"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declined to comment, while Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) issued a statement saying the presidential debate on Friday should go forward. He said it would not be helpful to inject presidential politics into the negotiations House and Senate members and the administration are now undertaking on the bailout plan."http://thehill.com/campaign-2008/democrats-say-mccains-move-a-stunt-2008-09-24.html
From the NY Times:
"Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic majority leader, said Mr. McCain and Mr. Obama should not return to Washington and inject presidential politics into the bailout negotiations.
“We need leadership, not a photo op,” a statement issued by Mr. Reid said."
The article does quote McCain saying that Reid earlier encouraged him to come to DC to make a vote.http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/25/us/politics/25campaign.html?hp
