John McCain’s sad crusade against gays

It’s sad to see Sen. John McCain, who once said he wasn’t necessarily opposed to repealing the U.S military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy banning gays from serving openly in our nation’s armed forces, reduced to being the U.S. Senate’s cranky bigot: McCain first led the Republican filibuster against the…

John McCain: Senate “Much Poorer Place” Without Feingold

Though I’ve been a harsh critic of Arizona Sen. John McCain, I have to give him credit for his heartfelt goodbye to Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, who was defeated by empty suit Ron Johnson in November’s election. For what it’s worth, Sen. McCain is absolutely right – the United States…

Maver “ICKY” McCain’s (John & Cindy) on DADT

They’re for it… they’re against it…. the flip floppery of the McCain duo is beyond the pale. We have Senator John McCain who seems to have selective amnesia and/or early senility impacting his staying true to his prior statements and beliefs on the elimination of DADT. Not long ago he said once the military leadership said DADT should go, he would support doing so. Today he denies his own prior statements.

Honor and Dishonor in the Senate on DADT

John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Jeff Sessions, Mitch McConnell and all the other lying sack of poop, and unpleasant homophobic geezer Senators in the U.S. Senate should be shamed for their dishonor of the thousands of gay and lesbian soldiers who have served honorably in the U.S. Military and ~14,000 who have been discharged after costly witch hunts. These men don’t understand the term “quote” honor and clearly don’t understand the reality of how this policy is being carried out today.

Here’s a link to the Hill’s 50 Wealthiest Legislators in Washington! Somebody there missed Herb Kohl…since the 50th person is at $5.1 million, Senator Kohl should certainly have been on this list.

Those empty suits like Ron Johnson agree with the darndest things!

Just for a moment let’s go back in history – back to the 2008 presidential campaign. Do you remember the moment during that campaign, when at a John McCain town hall meeting one woman said she couldn’t trust Obama because “he’s an Arab?” Do you remember McCain’s response? I do,…
