Profiles in courage

Profiles in courage



Example No. 1: John McCain:

"The day that the leadership of the military comes to me and says, Senator, we ought to change the policy, then I think we ought to consider seriously changing it because those leaders in the military are the ones we give the responsibility to."

-- Sen. John McCain, in an interview on Hardball in 2006, about the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

OK, so today the leadership of the military came and said we ought to change the policy. Can you guess what John McCain said in response? Just guess. Guess!

Example No. 2: Richard Cohen:

"We're all gonna die -- save us Obama!" Oh, grow up -- this may be the single worst newspaper column I've ever read. Ever.
