McCain's Attack on Chelsea Clinton's Sexuality Gains Fresh Attenion Upon Her Marriage

When I started this Truth-About-McCain blog to share facts about John McCain and to help prove that he ought never become president, it never occurred to me that the blog would continue to be relevant after the 2008 presidential election.  However, because McCain continues to a US Senator, his past remarks continue to be relevant to his current political status.  His attacks on famous others gain new attention when those others do things that are newsworthy.

So, it is that McCain calling Chelsea Clinton a lesbian sparks new interest on and around the day of the Chelsea Clinton's marriage.  As I reported here on May 5th, 2008,
Slate reports, "When [John McCain] got caught telling a dumb, nasty joke about Chelsea Clinton--the kind of crack that might cripple the career of someone else in Congress--he apologized immediately, was forgiven by the president." "The idiotic joke, which McCain told at a Republican fund-raiser, went something like this:"
"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father and Hillary Clinton is her mother." Audience members gasped.
For so long as John McCain remains a public figure, the stench of his attacks on women, including his own wife, will never go away.
