I'll bet this happens more often than you'd think

So why’d McCain vote against the DREAM Act?

[Grant Woods, an old friend who has known McCain for 28 years and was his first chief of staff] said “it hurts” McCain to vote against legislation like the Dream Act after years of working on reform but said the senator felt betrayed when Latinos overwhelmingly supported Obama in 2008. “When you carry that fight at great sacrifice year after year and then you are abandoned during the biggest fight of your life, it has to have some sort of effect on you,” he said.

See, you’d hope that our legislators don’t vote for such petty reasons, but that seems to be McCain’s MO. Piss him off and he’s gonna go against not only his political beliefs but the good of the nation just to, as Woods puts it, “pop them in the nose”.
