"Let me apologize to anybody and everybody within our listening and reading areas. I'm very sorry for missing the two votes.[...]

Saturday was our Christmas and Saturday evening was our Christmas dinner. I got up Sunday and came back to Washington to make the votes I had to make.

I was up front when I knew I would not be here on Saturday. I put that in the Congressional record because I didn't want anybody to think that I wouldn't make a vote or had intentionally missed a vote because it was a controversial issue. I think that anybody who knows me, making decisions has not been hard for me."

--Senator Joe Manchin on why he didn't vote against DADT repeal

Yeah, we get it Joe, you have reaffirmed your credentials as a homophobe. I am guessing you live in a Tea Party district--they must be very proud of you!
