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.
