Pro-equality being a 'duh' situation, we wonder when McCain forgot how to say the sound

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Shared Cms Images Newscenter 2005 02 MccainArizona Senator and possible presidential candidate John McCain is quoted as saying that he considers the military's ban on openly gay soldiers to be "very effective."

Begging the question: "When, exactly, did Sen. McCain lose the ability to say the "d" sound?" Because clearly he meant to call Don't Ask, Don't Tell "defective," as its positive effects are limited only to those who actually enjoy divisive societies where certain portions of tax-paying folks are barred from serving their country openly. So next time Senator: Be sure to enunciate your "d" sounds, or risk the chance that decent, equality-loving citizens will mistakenly think you're actually in favor of keeping gays stigmatized. And we know you (or your legacy) wouldn't want that, right senator?

But we're not done correcting McCain's phonetics yet! Be sure to look for future McCain-centric updates, when we'll also ponder what vocal disability has led the moderate senator to accidentally replace the words "two grown adults who are in love" with "one man, one woman," whenever he discusses same-sex marriage. After all, he simply must work on these phonetic slip-ups if he wants to rule the free world! Can you imagine a President who doesn't speak correctly?!?
