McCain Threatens to Block Defense Authorization Bill with DADT Repeal

The top “Marine Corps, Army and Air Force officers said Friday Congress should not scrap the ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy in the near-term, and a key Senate Republican threatened to block a bill containing repeal language from being debated,” The Hill reports.

After hearing testimony from the service chiefs, who said repealing the ban now would add more stress to troops during a time of war, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) suggested he could move to prevent floor debate on the 2011 defense authorization bill, which contains the repeal provision.

    I should really hate this man, but all I feel is pity for a senile old white man who lost his dream of being President of the United States and wants to make everyone as miserable as he has become. What a pathetic sad sack this son of a bitch has become.
