Lying Regarding Don't Ask, Don't Tell McCain Style

I think that The Daily Show did a good service in pointing out Sen. John McCain's beyond outrageous lying on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.  I think that he needs to get off of his "Bullshit Express," and be honest:  He doesn't want to see DADT repealed.  What is so hard about saying that?  I also think that he needs to tell that to all of the folks in the Log Cabin Republicans when they lobby Republican Senators on this issue in the coming days (and please bring a camera, so that the rest of the GLBT community can see that you have been lobbying GOP Senators, and not just throwing barbs at Sen. Reid and President Obama).  And I would love to have been a fly on the wall during the conversation when Cindy McCain was forced to lie about her actual feelings on DADT, though I am not sure if it was when she cut the PSA for the NO H8 campaign, or when she announced that she actually supported her husband's position.  Either way, she lied, and that is a real shame (and I hope that gay Republicans, and gay John McCain fans recognize that too).
