  1. If John McCain had been born 150 earlier than he was, then I have little doubt that he would have been adamant in his support for slavery.

    He really is a toxic bigot – a worthless human being who illustrates the lack of humanity of the neo-fascist Reublican Party

  2. Kind of a “can’t hear you” mentality, despite the fact his own wife and daughter are urging him and his party to abandon their anti same sex marriage stance.

    Once a bigot, always a bigot!

      He is clearly demonstrating one of the more patriarchal of traits: that of not listening to the reasoned arguments put across by junior members (females, in the case) of your own family. It is, as you say, out and out bigotry – another straight, white man with power seeks to deny rights to others.

    And that, ladies and gentleman is why John McCain isn’t or will never be president. I think we really have come to a turning point in the USA (FINALLY) where the votes of sane and respectful people are outweighing those of the crazy bible bashers.

  4. Who cares, he is famous for being a loser?

    John is too stupid and senile…time for someone to be brave enough to put him out of his misery…must be an animal shelter somewhere…

    Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has just announced support for equal marriage. Take that, republicans!

  8. It would be great if the article would link to the original source.

    btw, what SteveC said about McCain and slavery is ironically correct. In the old days the McCains owned one of the biggest plantations and slave work forces in Mississippi.

    Who cares what he thinks? He’s as irrelevant as yesterday’s newspaper. That big sound he hears in his head is a breeze of indifference.

    Sen. McCain isn’t the first to think he’s on the right side of history.

    I do not insinuate he ever shared the views of then Governor of Alabama, George Wallace, who bellowed to the world in 1963, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!”.

    Mr Wallace lived to regret having said this. I will hope, right here and now, that some day soon, Mr McCain will regret his opposition to our civil rights as well.

    Mr. McCain they should have left you in VietNam you would never have been missed and many Americans would not change their mind on that, either.

    If McCain and his ilk were responsible adults and politicians, they would stop pissing away precious time and money on fighting equal marriage and start taking care of the real problems. Equal marriage might make people happy, and it’s not often a politician can be instrumental in that field. Maybe McCain knows he’s not able or willing to care of serious matters and that’s why he’s distracting the public with his ‘views’ on equality.

  13. He just doesn’t realise you can’t change what no longer exists!!! McCain and ‘mind’ or ‘brian’ in the same sentence is an oxymoron … with heavy emphasis on the last two syllables!

    His OUTDATED views are what cost him the presidency. Who wants to listen to that old fogey anyhow?

  15. Fortunately biology will take care of his “opinion” soon.

  16. I thought he was dead already. Well, politically speaking he is.

  17. Even his daughter has a better chance at being elected for any political office. If his wife was a more sensate woman she would divorce him.

  18. Well, what we are seeing and hearing is another petulant republican child…
    No, no, no… I’ll never ever, ever change my mind!
    One thing that I’ve learnt in life, is to never, say never. You really don’t know what the future holds and there are so many things that can or may change your mind.
    Perhaps if Mr McCain had a little more flexibility of mind, then perhaps he might get somewhere politically?
    Though as a lot of posts have be saying, he’ll never be president and he’s more or less, yesterdays news!
