I wonder what John McCain thinks of the debt-ceiling debate?

I realize he's not in the House of Representatives, so from the viewpoint of our Village Media, his presence on the cable news circuit is probably less interesting than on most other issues.

But I wonder if this isn't related to the Republican capture of the House last year more generally. As in, with GOP control of the House, McCain is less of an opposition figure than he was in '09 and '10.

Maybe this development has been remarked upon by others, but given McCain's usual ubiquitousness in the media, suddenly noticing his absence is a surprise.
