|Hit the deck! Senator McCain sneers once again.|
I would imagine that right about now Senator John McCain is in the middle of a hissy fit, spitting nails in every direction, at whoever has the pleasure of being in his crosshairs. Oh, and of course with that timeless sneer that only a Liberal, centrist, or Independent can chuckle at.
Then, let's see...he's probably throwing some creepy shape-shifter faces at his wife, followed by the c-word in a variety of creative sentences...which is a stretch in that department of his brain, as he usually likes to jump barbed wire fence away from any idea that's creative or remotely outside the box.
But this is a special day for Senator McCain...as Don't Ask Don't Tell has been repealed...so we start to watch him spit as he yells. That icky white pasty stuff starts to cake at the corners of his mouth.
Tissue please? We need a little help over here in this corner of the chamber...no, with the "other" Republican white-haired gent. Yes, this one.
I'm sure after that episode, his crosshairs then move to his daughter, and her more centrist pro-gay views, where he has saved a special grab bag of a few choice words for her. By this time there's drool coming out of the corners of his mouth.
Let's see...what happens next. Then it's time to hit the bottle I suppose, if he already didn't start the day early within 30 seconds of entering his office after today's Senate activity. Needless to say, I'm sure he's throwing a few back tonight, crying in his scotch after today's activity on the Senate floor.
What can I do to help...let's see...oh, I got it. "Here's another tissue for your issue."
The vote finally passed in the Senate today, and President Obama will sign it into law on Monday. Gays will finally be able to serve openly in the military without the risk of repercussions.
No thanks to you, John McCain. The times are a-changin', there's no doubt. Unfortunately some Senators are too old and stubborn -- waaaaay past their shelf life of serving -- to know the difference.
This country, society, and the world for that matter, will simply shove them out of the way and move right past them.
