McCain distances self from cool wife, daughter

The twice-married philanderer has reaffirmed his belief in the sanctity of marriage. Via the WaPo:

John McCain’s office said in a statement that the Arizona senator respects the views of members of his family but remains opposed to gay marriage.

“Sen. McCain believes the sanctity of marriage is only defined as between one man and one woman,” the statement said. John McCain backed an Arizona ballot measure passed by voters in 2008 that defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

The NOH8 Web site praised Cindy McCain’s willingness to publicly endorse a cause that is unpopular within the Republican Party.

“The McCains are one of the most well-known Republican families in recent history, and for Mrs. McCain to have reached out to us to offer her support truly means a lot,” the site says. “Although we had worked with Meghan McCain before and were aware of her own position, we’d never really thought the cause might be something her mother would get behind. We have a huge amount of respect for both of these women for being brave enough to make it known they support equal marriage rights for all Americans.”
