Sen. McCain is desperately running to the right in an attempt to hold onto his seat. There was a time, years ago, when I actually had some level of respect for Sen. McCain. Those times are long gone. Hopefully this bigot will retire from the Senate soon

I really feel sorry for Megan and Cindy. They must cringe EVERY time he gets up to speak in the Senate, never knowing what kind of batsh!ttery will fall out of his mouth on any given day.

People certainly complain about Obama a lot, but I’m so glad McCain didn’t win. Can you imagine the ultra Conservative, gay-hating people he would have nominated for the Supreme Court?

Interesting that at one point, john mcpain said that he would support the repeal if the senior leadership at the pentagon supported it. Now we have most of the seniors supporting it and john mcpain blocking the defense bill because of DADT, what a typical politician. The sad part is now I live in AZ because the military transferred me and my partner here.

Does anyone remember McCain right after the Bush Tax cuts for the rich saying on TV: “This is bad legislation!”

But then when it came time for him to run for president, he reversed himself and supported the tax cuts.

That’s when I lost all respect for him, and he hasn’t failed my feeling of distain ever after.

He’s a geezer, and while we didn’t have TV and the internet to record the bigots during the civil Rights Movement, we do now, and he will go down in history with a sh!tty legacy.

What I want to know is where are the voices of Cindy and Megan now?

I’m so tired of these clowns in Arizona. Isn’t it about time for the place to shape up and send their Republican circus packing?

This PFC Manning exemplifies the rationale for keeping gays out of the military, because they tend to be a security risk.

Louis, you’re trolling. And your argument is completely ridiculous and your trolling obnoxious. Benedict Arnold is the best example of why straights should be kept out of the military. There is no evidence to suggest that gays are a security risk any more than anyone else. If you want to make arguments here, make sure you have evidence to back it up. You have posted nearly a dozen comments here with not virtually no source citations for your empty assertions. Aphorisms are not arguments.
