Fred Kaplan calls out McCain, and others like him:
The evidence, the polling data of service men and women, the testimony of senior officers, the everyday experiences of living and fighting, the imperatives of national security, as well as the obvious moral standards of contemporary lifeall point to, at the very least, a shift in the burden of proof on whether DADT should be repealed. It's no longer valid, and it's clearly a pretense, to call for further studies, further surveys, closer questioning. If McCain and the others oppose repeal, they have to come up with some new reasonor fall back on the oldest, most unpalatable reasonwhy.
Meanwhile, Mark Blumenthal dismembers McCain's attempt to dispute the survey's methodology.
