Video: McCain anti-civil unions, at least for this week

by Jeremy Hooper

John McCain's stance on civil unions has certainly flipped and flopped over the years.

We'll be sure to let you know if the Iowa leg of the Senator's campaign cares to further "explain" to us why, exactly, Americans being involved in their political process in a more participatory way is a bad thing. Until then, remember not to form or share any thoughts regarding the people who want to run your country, unless they are in a capacity where they can be carefully monitored.

**UPDATE2: They've written back:

Our final thoughts:

***UPDATE3: And this, my friends, is the reason why standing up and accurately stating our views is important:

Your thoughts

McCain will not have a chance to win over the 2 in 10 GLBT Republicans and their vote in the Republican Primary. Shame on him.
