WHAT is the secretary of Veterans Affairs thinking? On May 5, the department led by James B. Peake issued a directive that bans nonpartisan voter registration drives at federally financed nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and shelters for homeless veterans. As a result, too many of our most patriotic American citizens — our injured and ill military veterans — may not be able to vote this November.
Sort of like the old saying that you shouldn't go to the grocery store on an empty stomach. Something else for McCain to thank his buddy George Bush's Administration for.
