    WOW.

    So what is John MicCain planning to do with his token homo?

    I have a feeling Republicans are going to start shaking up the stereotype they inherited in the 90s.

    I think Cindy McCain has finally hit a John Home run!

    Her NOH8 Campaign has made an impact.

    I know the McCain's.....I like Cindy, She gives a lot to various charities and they have many gay friends

    Newsflash: John McCain has had several gay people working for him in the past. Mark Buse had been John McCain's chief of staff in the Senate for years (which is not news), now he's running his campaign.

    We've been through this so many times before. There were gay people in the Republican campaign before on many occasions--including the election last year. It's great, but really politically meaningless. Unless and until we see openly gay candidates, and gay-friendly policies, who cares?

    Word. Fed up with "progress". Want "results".

    McCain could have made great strides with the image of Republicans and Gay issues, but he has dropped the ball. He could have come out for DADT repeal like the senator who used to have his seat, Barry Goldwater, would have. I understand he has been dealing with the 08 election and now this primary election; McCain has to trip over himself to get the base to vote for him. They don't trust him or particularly like him but it still sucks he can't just stand on his convictions.

    I've lost respect for him steadily since the election ended, and maybe he will go back to the middle after he wins his primary. One can hope.

    Maybe when homosexuals stop to feel a need to come out, and make such a big deal about being either homosexual or bisexual thus make themselves look diffrent, and others feel they need to treat them diffrent too, that homosexuals will stop being known as only being "GAY" when they get a top job, and start to be known as the best man for the job. So what Mccain seeks help from a "GAY" man, just because he may not support this thing some call "Gay Marrage" I Civil Unions, doesn't make one homophobic you know.............

    The new guys is gross. I have seen him in person. He looks like a giant toad and he belches like one to. JD Hayworth!! God help us...

    "Some of my best friends are gay," doesn't translate into equal rights for gays.

    Until the cranky old son of a bitch comes out in favor of equal rights for gays, he's still a homophobe !

    And, I sincerely hope that he joins Arlen Specter in the old folks home.

    not related to this, i wonder if McCain is mentally stable enough to continue? He has been very irrational recently.

    I'm so glad that he did not become president. We would have ended up in a war with Iran. In fact, that seems to be the Republican answer to the economic crisis: put us in another war to take our minds off what is happening here. I would like to pass on that. I would rather go back to the concept of going to war only as a very last resort, where there are not other alternatives, and it is important enough to do so.
