In a related story: We hear that Cindy McCain will today give a speech, wherein she'll support her husband's pro-"Don't Ask Don't Tell," pro-state-level marriage bans, anti-hate crimes legislation, anti-ENDA stances, yet will vow to stop him whenever he wants to fast forward through the parts of "Ugly Betty" that he deems too gay. So that's something!

**PFLAG's Steve Ralls has some thoughts on Micchelle's speech. He posts them at HuffPo:
