McNasty's "Finest Hour"

Washington Monthly's Steve Benen has a useful summary of Arizona Rethug Sen. John McNasty's ever-changing positions on "don't ask, don't tell":
"The anti-gay senator started by saying we can't repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' until the Secretary of Defense says it's a good idea. When the Pentagon chief did just that, McCain shifted gears and said repeal should wait for the go-ahead from the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff. When the chairman did just that, McCain said he'd take his cues from Colin Powell. When Powell endorsed repeal, McCain said he'd honor the opinions of servicemen and women. And now that service members are on board with repeal, McCain told NBC News yesterday, 'I'm paying attention to the commandant of the Marine Corps.'

It's bordering on amusing."
What's next for McNasty? "I'm waiting to hear what Gen. Eisenhower says" or maybe "I'll go along with whatever God tells me."

Country First!
