First, John McCain says he’s against making torture legal through the Military Commissions Act, then McCain turns around and votes for the Military Commissions Act, and makes torture legal.
That’s not straight talk.
First, John McCain says he thinks that Religious Right activists like Reverend Jerry Falwell are “agents of intolerance” that bring shame to America and to the Republican Party. Then, McCain visits Jerry Falwell’s offices, gives Reverend Falwell a big hug, and calls Falwell a good friend.
When a reporter asked John McCain, a United States Senator, whether he thought that contraceptives help control the spread of HIV, McCain refused to give an answer. “You’ve stumped me,” McCain said. John McCain refused to give a straight answer.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for John McCain to give straight talk on moral issues either. When a reporter asked McCain whether he agreed with General Peter Pace that homosexuality is immoral, John McCain would not give an answer to the question.
This isn’t straight talk.
John McCain knows very well whether he thinks that homosexuality is immoral. Either he thinks that homosexuality is immoral, or he doesn’t. It’s straightforward, but McCain doesn’t want to be straight with you. He doesn’t want to tell you what he thinks.
John McCain is waiting to figure out what the politically convenient thing to say is.
John McCain has become so crooked, he doesn’t know what straight means any more.
