John McCain Says He Will Support DADT Repeal

Senator John McCain, who put a lot of energy into defending the law that barred gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military, has had a reluctant change-of-stance, and now says he will work to make sure that the repeal is properly implemented.

According to The Hill, McCain said he has since made peace with the new repeal legislation passed last month, saying “I think I have to do everything I can to make sure that the impact on the morale, retention, recruitment and battle effectiveness of the military is minimized as much as possible,” McCain said Thursday on Fox Business. “It is a law and I have to do whatever I can to help the men and women who are serving, particularly in combat, cope with this new situation. I will do everything I can to make it work.”

It’s something positive from McCain, albeit totally passive-aggressive and bordering on whiny.
