John McCain on DADT

Either John McCain just isn't following this debate, or he assumes that no one else is. Is he saying that no one cared about DADT before Obama brought it up? That a voluntary military means that gays don't get kicked out? That the DADT survey didn't ask the troops what they think of DADT repeal?

I'd like to think th at McCain is just demented but I fear it is much more malignant than having another demented old white man in the Senate. He is a homophobic bigot who during his campaign was trying to pander to the left and the right--looking reasonable. He thought, perhaps, at the time that there was no way DADT ever would be considered for repeal. Now that is is close, his true colors have emerged. I've never had any use for him and still do not. His entire persona, to me, is one of continuous barely controlled rage.
