Today Senator McCain (R-AZ), the same who blessed us all with the Palin Family, roused again from senatorial stupor to attack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, regarding his position on DADT and his acceptance of a lengthy study by the Army suggesting that most service personnel couldn't care less about whether the guy or gal on a mission with them was gay.
Now it's the study itself that is flawed?
Why are we still listening to this aged one-issue Senator who consistently proclaims his love for all things military and claims the right to speak for them?
I have tremendous respect and admiration for the Senator's service, which consisted of completing Navy Jet Flight Training and surviving years of torture and isolation in a POW camp. He was retired from the Navy as a Captain, a good deal less rank than that of Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, whose military credentials he was questioning.
For the life of me I cannot see how McCain's experiences make him competent to set military policy or order military affairs, or even to order men.
This is all just too ridiculous. We have so many real problems And McCain is still wringing the last shred of juice he has out of this rag??
I just wish McCain would go home. Other people go to Arizona and retire, why can't he? I also wish he could put Sarah Palin and her family back into what ever box he found them. I wish we could hear from real people, and there are some, with relevant ideas to listen to.
