    The effort to end the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy faces a major hurdle today with Republican Sen. John McCain vowing to filibuster a vote on a defense bill that includes a controversial repeal of the law.

    Democratic supporters of the bill say it's unclear they have the 60 Senate votes needed to override McCain, despite unprecedented popular and legislative support for allowing openly gay and lesbian individuals to serve in the military.

    What does that have to do with bigotry?

    Dude McCain is a Progressive Republican.....aka NOT CONSERVATIVE.

    I'm also not sure about the bigotry.

    Bigotry against gay people is a Republican core value.

    Did you read McCain's comments? HIs comments did not show nor did they imply bigotry.

    That's an opinion, albeit misinformed.

    But my question still stands: What does being against repealing DADT have to do with bigotry?

    News to me. Likely news to my gay friends who vote Republican as well.

    The "Moral Majority" crew ain't the entire Republican Party, Chris.

    Of course not.

    Always hide your real motives.

    From Reagan's "welfare queen", to Willie Horton to Bin Laden to Saddam to the Rev Wright to Obama to illegal immigrants, the Republicans always have a black or brown or gay boogieman to scare white suburban voters with.

    McCain is playing politics to appeal to bigoted voters or better yet, not to piss off bigoted voters.

    Oh. I see. The 'bigotry' is in a code to which you have the encryption code?
