McCain-Not pro-much a 'nothin

Doesn't seem so different to me.

NEW YORK -- John McCain has pitched himself as a different kind of Republican but not, apparently, when it comes to gay rights.

In a interview with the Conservative magazine Weekly Standard , McCain was asked if he was considering a pro-choice vice presidential pick like former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge. In his answer he volunteered Mike Bloomberg as an unworthy candidate:

"I think it's a fundamental tenet of our party to be pro-life but that does not mean we exclude people from our party that are pro-choice. We just have a -- albeit strong -- but just it's a disagreement. And I think Ridge is a great example of that. Far more so than Bloomberg, because Bloomberg is pro-gay rights, pro, you know, a number of other issues.

Anyone who thinks this man is a maverick or whatever, is plain kidding themselves. If it's up to him, I have neither rights as a woman nor as a lesbian. Tell me again how he will claim to lead my country (not to mention collect my taxes)?And here is the rest of it.

Is "Misogynist" too strong of a word for McCain? If so i'll just say "Male Chauvinist" I never could figure out why anyone would think they would have a right to choose how we live our personal lives. Isnt there REAL issues they should be thinking about? I forgot, they cant handle the real ones. I can gurantee you, no one will ever tell me how to live, its my life, my choice!

McCain would love to set women's rights back 100 years. He would enjoy seeing gay people as POWs. If he is anti-people of any kind then one day he will be anti-YOU, no matter who you are.
