Mark Begich’s Goose Egg

How do you know if you’re an ineffective Senator for your state? Ask Mark Begich.

Oh sure, Begich rolls out TV ads that tout how he’s getting things done for Alaska, but as Alaska Rep. Don Young pointed out recently, Begich is taking credit for other people’s work.

This morning, The Hill reported that Begich, who was elected in 2008, has “never received a roll-call vote on an amendment he’s offered on the Senate floor.”

For those of you keeping score at home, that’s the same number of roll-call votes that Kermit the Frog and Donald Duck have in the U.S. Senate.
