DADT Survey Gives Has MSNBC Going All Gay All The Time: Matthews, Maddow, Olbermann Dive In

Last night on Hardball, the Log Cabin Republicans’ R. Clarke Cooper called on Sen. John McCain, in light of the Pentagon’s survey results, to drop his opposition to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Neato! Rachel Maddow, flashing a giant green light, also gave McCain and fellow Republicans — and all senators, really — the chance to come around.

But he of course won’t do that, explains Dan Savage on Countdown, because McCain is a bigot, which is the most honest and concise assessment of a sitting U.S. senator I’ve ever heard. “There’s really no other explanation for his back flips and his hypocrisy than just irrational animus, which is the definition of bigotry.”

    What’s “Gives Has”?

    And you’re knocking MSNBC for exposing bigotry, discrimination, and injustice? WTF?

  • John (CA)

    @Mike in Asheville: This is, unfortunately, very typical of Queerty.

    Has anyone anywhere bothered to ask if the survey asked gay military personnel what the fuck they think of heterosexuals? This is so blatently discriminatory to talk and behave from the premise that a survey asking straight people if they can handle being around gay people is at all valid in any way. Fuck them. They are bigot shitheads and i want to know when my taxdollars are going to fund a survey where gay people get to approve or disapprove of straight people?

  • ewe

    Private gay citizens should file a class action lawsuit for spending their money funding a survey that asks heterosexuals if they approve of homosexuals. This is a fucking outrage.

    Jesus, would it kill Dan Savage to put on a tie or something to go on national TV? He looks like he’s going to the laundromat.

    @Jeff: I disagree with you. I cannot stand seeing Michael Signorile in a tie when he is on CNN. He looks like an out of place Popeye trying to fit in with people nothing like him. Please. Don’t ask gay people to blend anymore than what is already expected. It is hard enough and i highly value individuality. Dan Savage looks great. It is the content of his speech more than the dressing. George Bush wore a tie and expensive shoes. He is a moron.

  • ewe

    @Jeff: i disagree. Content is more important than trying to blend in for acceptance.

  • ewe

    @Jeff: and i also think Michael Signorile looks rediculous and completely transparently uncomfortable and out of his element when he is in a suit.

  • ewe

    @Jeff: Have you ever seen Signorile in a tie? It even makes me squirm because it is not him at all. The guy looks like he stepped out of a gym and a tie choking him around the neck is not a natural or comfortable sense of fashion for him.

    Dan Savage is a great spokesperson for our Movement, but MSNBC is just “preaching to the choir.”

    The Survey is in and it is indisputable. Senators voting against Repeal vote Against the Will of the American People. The Bigots will be Revealed.
    Senatorial voting records during the original Civil Rights Movement might have been obscured or unpublicized, but the Votes of Today’s Senators will be Front Page News! , and we must remind them of this!

    @AndrewW: My thoughts exactly. Also, Keith Olbermann is insufferable, no matter how much I do or don’t agree with him. I wish Dan Savage got a better platform on which to talk about these issues.
