Cindy McCain, wife of Republican Senator John McCain, is coming out of the closet, publically supporting same sex marriage along side her daughter, Meghan, a well-known marriage equality advocate.
The mother and daughter team both posed for photos contributing their support to the NOH8 campaign, leading the way when it comes to breaking down party perimeters, and redefining political boundaries on gay rights.
Yeah, that’s right, not one but TWO members of the most recognized Republican family is crossing the red line of discrimination to announce civil liberties and human rights is not just for some, but for all!
Meghan McCain, describing herself as a “woman who despises labels and boxes and stereotypes” will be a keynote speaker during next month’s National Equality Week at George Washington University.
NOH8 Campaign stated they were more than surprised when Cindy McCain came to them offering her support to fight against Prop 8 in California. This might just put ol’ John two giant leaps closer to that retirement home shuffle, screaming “Where’s my goddamn tapioca!”
Of, course, the Republican Senator swiftly made an official statement from his office in Arizona, stating he respects the views of his family but he still opposes same sex marriage and made it very clear to stress his record against this particular issue. I gather he’s bragging about getting Arizona’s anti-gay marriage amendment passed back in November of 2008. Don’t brag old man — it’s not too hard to get a bunch of suburban tapioca eating republican retirees to vote against a bunch of queers getting married. I could do that in my sleep.
Anybody, no matter the political affiliation, would have to agree, Cindy and Meghan McCain are two extremely brave Republicans for coming out and supporting what is roundly condemed within their own party and at home. For a wife and daughter of an ex-Republican Presidential candidate to stand up, uncover and reclaim their views, and lend their support and voices for our human/civil rights, is not only appreciated but courageous. Cheers ladies!
Now if we just find a way to put that rainbow pill in John’s tapioca…
