Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

John MCain: hero, homophobe

What a pathetic decline for Senator John McCain, a guy I once considered voting for for President.  The Republicans insisted for months that any decision on the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy must await a survey of troops.  Now that the survey is done, they don’t like the results. 

Suddenly, Mr. McCain is an expert on social surveys.  Not enough troops were questioned; the wrong questions were asked.  Worse, Mr. McCain stooped to a personal attack on the Joint Chiefs Chairman, a thirty-two year naval veteran, suggesting  Admiral Mike Mullen‘s views are irrelevant since  “the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is not directly in charge of the troops.”  Hmmm, I don’t think Senator McCain is directly in charge of any troops either.
