John McCain Working with 'Hate Group' Family Research Council to Roll Back or Block 'DADT' in 2011


Writes hate group leader Tony Perkins, of the Family Research Council, in the group's holiday update:

"As for FRC, who will take great pleasure in seeing this lame-duck finally limp out of town, we'll be spending the next couple of weeks reassessing the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' debate. In fact, I've already been in conversations with Hill leaders about holding hearings in the New Year, as well as statutory and legislative oversight steps that can be taken to turn back aspects of the repeal and slow down--if not stop--the rest. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and others will be working with FRC to put a strict evaluation process in place. We want to ensure that the Pentagon is monitoring the effect of this radical change on the men and women in harm's way. One way to do that is demanding specific measurables--like tracking the sexual assaults, dips in recruitment and retention, combat distractions, and more. If there's the slightest disruption to the military's mission, you can bet that FRC will be on the Hill, demanding to revisit this repeal. And unlike the Senate Majority Leader, we won't consult Lady Gaga first."

The 'DADT' repeal act signing is scheduled to take place at 9:15 am at the Department of Interior. Please join us LIVE a few minutes before that time.

  1. I despise John McCain as much as I should, but this article at TPM (I have no idea if it's GOP or liberal-based) suggests that this isn't the case, at least according to a McCain staff member.

  2. That's a cute little quip in the last paragraph. Funny, I remember when McCain was consulting Snooki regarding the tanning tax.

  3. Tony, your ship has sunk and your lifeboats are leaky. Your agenda is inevitably doomed to failure, and all your resistance will make you history's fool.

  4. One way I define a true "Kinsey zero", 100 percent straight man, is that they have no trouble with homosexuality. It's like the idea of zebras mating- just "other" and no threat to them.

    Tony is letting his slip show by acting like gay sex by some is a threat to others.

    Time to do some oppo research and get a "blue speedo" full of his DNA (akin to the Lewinsky blue dress.) It is not just an interesting hypocrisy that Larry Craig, Mark Foley, and so many anti-gay preachers are themselves gay. It is the rule. Homophobes are gay. They protest too much. Truly straight guys have better things to do.

    I'm for setting up a sting.

  9. And with the Democrats still in control in the White House and the Senate ... McCain is going to do what with his hate bill?
