Cindy McCain transcends the principle of non-contradiction
Cindy McCain supports a measure that would overturn the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and allow homosexuals to serve openly in the armed forces, even as, in the same paragraph, she adds that “I stand by my husband’s stance on DADT.” But of course her husband, at least in his current political incarnation, wants DADT to remain in place.
Doug Powers writes at Michelle Malkin’s site: “Cindy must have gotten those mad flip-flop skills from watching her husband talk about border fences.” But Powers doesn’t have it quite right. A flip-flop is when you take one position, and then change to the opposite position. But what Cindy has done is to combine two contradictory statements into one.
