Military- McCain: "We have the best-trained, most professional, best-equipped, most efficient, most wonderful military in the history of this country, and I'm proud of every one of them. So I think it would be a terrific mistake to even reopen the issue. The policy is working. And I am convinced that that's the way we can maintain this greatest military. Let's not tamper with them"

California Same-sex Marriage: McCain wants California to overturn their Supreme Court's ruling and put a ban on same-sex marriages..."I support the efforts of the people of California to recognize marriage as a unique institution between a man and a woman, just as we did in my home state of Arizona."
Supporters of Palin will try to say that she vetoed a bill that would have gotten rid of partnership benefits for homosexual state employees, hence, she must be pro-gay, right?
Palin vetoed the bill only after the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that a bill ridding same-sex partners of state employee benefits would be unconstitutional. She openly and publicly disagreed with the court ruling and now supports a referendum to have the state constitution modified JUST SO SHE CAN OVERTURN THE Supreme Court of Alaska's ruling!
