Cindy McCain appeared in a video for the NOH8 Campaign this week, saying, "Our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future ... They can't serve our country openly ... Our government treats the LGBT community like second-class citizens, why shouldn't [the bullies]?" But yesterday evening, she tweeted: "I fully support the NOH8 campaign and all it stands for and am proud to be a part of it. But I stand by my husband's stance on DADT." Her husband, senator John McCain, led the GOP filibuster that prevented Congress from voting on a "don't ask, don't tell" repeal, thus telling LGBT youth that they can't serve their country openly, as Cindy so eloquently put it only a few days ago. Did John and Cindy have some sort of "talk"? Sigh.
