    Yuri I don’t know what you’re talking about. While it’s true that McCain has been a supporter of the gay community she also campaigned for and still defends her homophobic father.

    I suppose I just don’t care what she does.

    LOL, I guess MSNBC “let her go” from their contract, despite the fact I doubt she’s been on their network in 2 or more years. She’s just hired to Republican bash, then gets set to the side.

    Her father not only homophobic, he is also a war monger who wants US troops to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. He also blamed the current admin. for the presence of al-Qaida in Iraq.

    What a bad choice, but like most non or not for profits, the board is probably made up of the largest donors.

    I do not trust her one bit, and this has made GLAAD less trustworthy.
