Poor Cindy

I feel sorry for Cindy McCain. I think she made a bad marriage, and I think she knows it. A few hours after her commercial where she, for all intent and purpose, condemned the government's DADT policy, she repudiated her stance in what can only be described as a humiliating act. More than a few of John McCain's colleagues have described him as a bully, and I have to wonder if he called her up and told her she had no choice but to follow his lead and come over to the conservative dark side or else.
Now, Obama is against DADT but wants congress to overturn it so that, as a written law, the next president can't just come in and reverse things again. The Joint Chiefs don't seem to care, with the exception of the Marines... not too surprising. Secretary Gates wants it reversed and only 40% of actual military personnel think it's a good idea, which means that 60% either don't care or want it reversed. When it gets right down to it, it's only the right wing moralists, the Repug constituency, that cares, and John McCain, a man of no real integrity, follows the political advantage. Poor Cindy. It's time to make the big decision. Stand by your man or D-I-V-O-R-C-E.
