Mr. McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said in an interview with The New York Times that was published Sunday that he opposed allowing same-sex couples to adopt children. “I think that we’ve proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don’t believe in gay adoption,” he said……
On Tuesday, as his statements were criticized by a number of gay rights organizations, his campaign clarified his remarks. “John McCain could have been clearer in the interview in stating that his position on gay adoption is that it is a state issue, just as he made it clear in the interview that marriage is a state issue,” Tucker Bounds, a campaign spokesman, said in a statement. “He was not endorsing any federal legislation.” —NYTimes
Right. Got it. When he said he “didn’t believe in gay adoption,” he was talking about the distinction between state and federal laws. Not how he felt about homosexuals adopting children.
How stupid do you need to be to believe this kind of spin and doubletalk? And why doesn’t Mr Straight Talk Express have the courage to stick to his own prejudices convictions? Why doesn’t he come out and say that like most Americans of his ancient generation, he’s acutely uncomfortable around “queers” and wants them to fade back into the shadows, if not die off, and hopes that Real Red Meat Rock Ribbed Americans respect him for his outspokenness and vote his ass into the White House? Did he lose his balls when he dumped his first wife and married the wealthy trophy?
Of course, the Uncle Toms of the gay world lined right up.
Patrick Sammon, the president of Log Cabin Republicans, a gay Republican group, said in a statement: “We are pleased that Senator McCain clarified the remarks, and we thank the senator for once again re-iterating his belief that issues concerning marriage and family laws should be left up to the states — not the federal government.”
Count on all four card-carrying members (pun) of the Log Grabbin ‘Pubes to walk in self-hating goose-step synchronicity with this position. Face it, fellas: McCain and the ‘Pubs hate you like poison, some of whom think AIDS is a god-given blessing to purge you from the planet. When it comes to gay issues, their thinking is identical to fundamentalist Muslims’. But in these lickspittle, self-censoring, politically correct times, they can’t be straight (!) about even their own sacrosanct beliefs. Spin spin spin.
You’d think a guy who spent 5 years as a tortured POW would have earned the right to speak his mind, but that’s not the way the game is played. Not in this system. Not any more. And that’s the American Effin Way.
