  1. Olympia Snowe will end up very much liking getting fucked by Mitch McConnell and voting against cloture than supporting principles.

  2. Let's objectively point out that Rachel Maddow shows some prejudice in implying that John McCain contradicted himself in respect of supporting, or not, repeal of DADT. In the clip she plays, McCain talks about having "serious discussion" about the issue. It is the "serious discussion" on which he contradicted himself, not on repeal of DADT specifically. In the clip she showed, McCain said nothing about supporting the repeal of DADT, but only about having "serious discussion" of the issue, which he now opposes.

  3. McCain used to say that he would vote for repeal if the Pentagon wants it. Then Robert Gates and Mike Mullen went public in favor for repeal and now McCain is against it. That's the hypocrisy.

  4. Chuck, what's the argument? Because it's still a huge contradiction!

  5. Why isn't Rachel Maddow criticizing Obama? It was Obama who promised to repeal DADT. It's Obama who's President. The President has a lot of power. Why hasn't he exercised it in relation to repealing DADT?

    Obama promised to be a "fierce advocate" for our rights but it's turned out that he's a dud. A liar and a dud. Rachel might be right to criticize McCain but she also needs to criticize Obama for failing us.

  6. American leaders are playing politics with human rights, this is shameful. The world is watching today, and we're a little sickened by it.

  7. Well Jason, if you watch Maddow's show, she does quite a bit of criticism on Obama's lack of arm twisting for repeal, but this segment is about McCain's filibuster, and Obama does not have the power to break a filibuster.

    Please consult your constitution.

  9. Is this all it took to shut down The Pentagon?

  10. if DADT isn't repealed all gays in the military should resign. it sounds harsh but why stay where you aren't wanted or appreciated. plus the loss of of 40- 50 thousand service members would wake up all the bigots because most of them haven't served and most of them support the war.LGBT service people should not have to put themshelves in harms way and not be able to be themshelves.
