    Apparently to Senator McCain, 'military leaders' means 'those leaders that agree with my antiquated ideals' and not Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    Pancakes has flip flopped?

    He should probably slip into some nice comfy flip flops, make him self some pancakes, and then shuffle over to the table the discussion, bring it to the floor and then we toss the whole thing out the window. Of course by then none of it would have a leg to stand on, and we would have to send it back to the floor.

    /I had way to much coffee this morning. I don't know where any of that came from. Probably to much time on Fark

    John McCain shoulda been banned from the military. The man's a disgrace.

    Considering his abysmal polling numbers, the way he was embarrassed last year as a candidate for president, and the publicity his family has generated for their support of marriage equality, the man needs to invigorate his insane base if he wants to be reelected.

    Surprisingly so is his daughter and wife but they both are proving to be infinitely more intelligent than this d-bag whose age rivals Jesus' disciples.

    His wife and daughter nailed the coffin that was his career and rightfully so.

    This is yet another example of the change that is in the air and the tide of support that is moving in the direction of gays & lesbians relating to many issues. Republicans like John McCain will either climb on board or be left behind. There are many Republicans who do not feel the same as John McCain, so when someone like McCain makes a statement like that he is NOT speaking for all Republicans.

    Let's thank our lucky stars that this asshole and his female asshole counterpart, palin, didn't get the white house. Phew, and to think of the number of guys here who supported them. Disgraceful.

    HUH? exactly how do you (curiousjockaz) determine who is speaking for all republicans? i could be wrong but it seems to me that whenever a republican official or demi-god makes a statement- it is your contention that they don't speak for all republicans...

    are u just doing the slick willie thing?

    Nope, I am merely making the point that John McCain, who is clearly coming from an old school line of thinking and another era, is voicing an opinion that is not necessarily shared by ALL Republicans.

    That being said, Gays in the military is a complicated issue if for no other reason than many in the military do not necessarily want gays serving beside them. Whether this bigotry towards gays is right or wrong is behind the point when it comes to the effectiveness of the military.

    According to the poll I posted, 59% of repubs are in agreement with McCuckoo. So, while he may not be speaking for all of them, he's speaking for most of them.

    The Republicans who are "on this bandwagon" are still in a minority.

    So, when Obama said he is not for marriage equality but merely full civil equality did he, as the leader of the Democrat party, speak for you?

    CJ was simply saying that the dinosaurs are dying out. While I believe in almost nothing in the GOP platform, I can better respect an opposition party that doesn't have a medieval attitude towards minorities. How is praising a movement towards that a bad thing?

    Right. It would be nice to finally move to a two-party system that doesn't define itself based on its social platform.

    It would be nice to move to a multiparty system.

    Personally, I think these polls are a crock.

    Of course you do. They don't reflect well on your party.

    I'm sure I could find a poll out there somewhere that doesn't exactly reflect well on the Democratic party either. All I know is that no one ever polled me icon_lol.gif

    Here's another repub senator weighing in with his mighty wisdom. They may be dinosaurs, but damn, there sure are a lot of them scaly lizard skinned motherfuckers.

    "In my opinion, the presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would very likely create an unacceptable risk to those high standards. It will lead to alcohol use, adultery, fraternization, and body art. If we change this rule of 'Don't Ask, Dont Tell' what are we going to do with these other rules?" - Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)
