McCain McDoubles His Efforts
Regardless of what Americans think about Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) politics, we can all agree on one thing: he's a fighter. And yesterday on the Senate floor, he showed flashes of that old Navy toughness, challenging Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) to a fierce war of words over "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Sen.
McCain has been one of the few leaders willing to stand up for our troops, trying to beat back the push to celebrate homosexuality in our military. And he made it clear on Thursday that he won't give an inch until Senate leaders give his party the chance to strike down the language on DADT and military abortions -- an opportunity they didn't have last year when Democrats attached "hate crimes" legislation without any debate. If you have a chance, the video of the Senators' exchange is worth a watch.
