    I was really surprised by her turnaround.

    I guess her convictions are pretty malleable.icon_evil.gif


    Or she is just following biblical injunctions of wives obeying their husbands.


    Has the McCain daughter made any comment about this development?

    I have a but of a crush on for Meghan McCain. She strkes me as one of those reasonable Republicans. She speaks her mind well, and she is apparently unafraid of disagreeing publicly with the Party brass.

    the Democratic Party should keep their eye on her - if she were ever to bear the standard for the GOP she could be a formidable candidate.

    I haven't heard of any reaction from Meghan regarding this issue. And I share your crush. Reasonable Pugs are like hens' teeth!

    She said she supports her husband...that doesnt mean she agrees with him or recants anything previously said support-wise before on those policies...perhaps the tweet should have been fully read or understood before an article was written leading people to assume something wrongfully....a cornerstone in american media..

    Joe Jervis (joe.my.god.com) posts she has retracted her statement condemning DADT

    1) There is no "community"

    2) She doesn't want to lose support among the Bible Belt Republicans, you know, the social conservatives, which are around 30-40% of the current Republican party?

    When I look at her twitter messages I don't really see Cindy McCain backtracking over her NOH8 but more of the old southern/medieval mindset of her "being in a womens place". After her outspoken words in support of repealing DADT, her husband Sen McCain more than likely had to save face with his fellow republican lackeys . Although this just speculation, I believe that there may be more going on behind the scenes to just take the tweet at face value.

    Just my thoughts at least.

    No, there is no "community".

    The whole concept of calling everything a "community" is something that's unique to American English. It doesn't occur in any other languages, English or otherwise.

    Ever saw that segment of AC360 where they were talking about the "bug chasers"? There was this woman on the show who talked about the "barebacking community". Like seriously, gimme a break.

    Also unique to the US is calling a housing development a "community".

    See a pattern emerging here..?

    As was once spoken in the mess hall of the Ministry of Truth:

    "Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it."

    This whole "community" thing is getting to people's brains. It's unhealthy.

    Jesus Christ, I just meant "all of the people who are GLBT."

    You all need to settle down; decaf, perhaps?

    This is how I read her "tweet," which is really too short to allow for a nuanced position.

    Her words in support of NOH8 are firm; her words in regards to her support of her husband's stance may be where there's some latitude.

    I don't think she's backpeddling; rather, she's saying she respects her husband's position on the issue even though it's one that she does not support.

    They're just idiot being idiots. icon_wink.gif

    Given the choice between marriage equality and DADT- I'd choose marriage equality any day.

    (Because I have no intention of ever renting my soul to the devil)

    but how can she be a traitorous cunt when she owes us/you nothing. She has every right to her own political view, and too stand by her man. You should go blaming free willie bill for starting this in the first place, after all it is a democratic policy is it not, and the democrats have done squat to dismantle it, other than lip service.

    Also if one wants to live under minority rule, move to Cuba, or China,and as the saying goes, if you don't like it, then move.

    Exactly, without Cindy saying to much else, she says "He's my husband no matter what choices he makes (no matter how poor). I will stand by him because he's my husband"

    When you stand by someone who makes sloppy or poor decisions that is some form of amor whether foolish or strong. I don't think she means wrong to either side but she is the case in point: being stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    This is yet another example of people taking part of what someone says and expanding on it to fit their own personal bias. I don't believe Cindy McCain in any way meant that she changed her position, but rather only that she supports her husband on his right to have his own position on DADT.

    For the record, I don't anything is set in stone as to how John McCain will vote on this once the Pentagon data has been presented to congress and the heads of the military have given their recommendation. To assume anything other than that is just guessing.

    But since America is the worlds biggest Christain country, these people have a right to representation. After all America is a democracy the majority rule, so if you want to live under a dictatorship where the minority rules, move to Cuba, it's only next door.

    Remember DADT is a democratic baby, born from Free Willie Bill Clinton, and what have your beloved democrats done to dismantle it? It could be suggested that if homosexuals obeyed the rules and never joined the military, this would never of been an issue in the first place.

    Putting aside your inability to spell "Christian" correctly...

    This is STILL one of the most inane posts in the history of electronic communication.

    For everyone claiming their is no "community" you are taking the phrase far to literal.

    I thought redering it "Chri-STAIN" was a pretty funny Freudian slip.

    Corrections: you used 'too' incorrectly. The proper version is 'to', with one 'O'. This is universal in English.

    Do yourself, and us, a favor and read the history of DADT, will you? Here, let me give you a link to Wikipedia's entry on it: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_ask,_don%27t_tell#Origin[/url]. I know reading can be hard, but you can do it!
