John McCain DADT Repeal Reaction: 'Today Is A Very Sad Day'

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), once a voice of optimism for repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, reportedly called Saturday “a very sad day” before the Senate voted to lift the military ban.

"I hope that when we pass this legislation that we will understand that we are doing great damage," said the four-term incumbent before the vote, according to ABC News. “Today is a very sad day.”

Back in 2006, the longtime senator communicated a distinctly different view on the issue. “The day that the leadership of the military comes to me and says, ‘Senator, we ought to change the policy,’ then I think we ought to consider seriously changing it,” he said at the time.

What a dick. Seriously. You know what a sad day is? When you can’t get Congress to agree to help out the jobless and desperate with promised unemployment benefits without ridiculous, deficit-increasing “benefits” for the rich, thanks to the party which contains supposed conservatives. That’s a sad day.
