Let's get this straight. After years of debate, the infamous "don't ask, don't tell" bill has been abolished and President Obama will sign a new bill on tomorrow allowing men and women to serve their country without being thrown out because of their sexuality. No longer will vitally needed, highly educated translators, engineers, soldiers, and many others have to lie about who they are. What lessons have we been teaching our young people over the last decade? It's okay to be gay as long as you lie about it. It's okay to betray your fellow worker if his or her choices are not in agreement with yours.....AND THIS IS WHAT JOHN MCCAIN AND MANY OTHER SPINELESS LEADERS ENDORSED?!
Bravo to the GOP senators and representatives who voted for the new measure and SHAME on those GOP and DEMOCRATIC members who voted against it or stayed away out of cowardice. 80% of Americans were for the change, the major military brass were for it, and the rank and file of military were for it or just didn't care. And what's left hanging in the wind? A tattered old man still raving along with his cronies. If John McCain were King Lear, we could pity him. But he's not, and we don't.
