    Default Cindy McCain joins campaign protesting gay marriage ban

    Cindy McCain NOH8 PHOTO: McCain Joins Project Protesting Prop 8

    On Wednesday, the NOH8 campaign protesting California's Proposition 8 announced a new high-profile Republican supporter: John McCain's wife, Cindy McCain. NOH8 is a photo project in which subjects are photographed wearing white, against a white background, with their mouths taped shut and "NOH8" painted on their faces.

    McCain's daughter Meghan McCain -- a vocal proponent of marriage equality -- posed for NOH8 last summer. (Her Daily Beast piece explaining why she posed can be found here.)

    The NOH8 website posted the following note, along with McCain's photo, expressing the campaign's surprise and appreciation that she decided to join the cause.

    Redefining Republican:

    In the year since we've started the NOH8 Campaign, we've been surprised at some of the different individuals who have approached us showing their support. Few, though, have surprised us more than Cindy McCain--the wife of Senator John McCain and mother to vocal marriage equality advocate Meghan McCain. 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. Although we had worked with Meghan McCain before and we were aware of her own position, we'd never really thought the cause might be something her mother could get behind.

    Aligning yourself with the platform of gay marriage as a Republican still tends to be very stigmatic, but Cindy McCain wanted to participate in the campaign to show people that party doesn't matter - marriage equality isn't a Republican issue any more than it is a Democratic issue. It's about human rights, and everybody being treated equally in the eyes of the law that runs and protects this country.
    Both McCains' NOH8 photos are below. (h/t advocate.com)

    I'm sure McCain always uses duct tape to keep Cindy quiet when she runs out of pills.

    she is totally evil and serpentine looking. but for once she's putting her evil to good use so i won't say anything mean about her.

    She looks like I imagined Voldemort's wife would look, after she re-became a person.

    I wonder if she's mad at John or maybe just asserting her independence?

    Or maybe this is what she really believes but didn't have to balls to say so while he was running for president.

    Good on her I guess for showing support, but yeah..

    My thoughts exactly. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Meanwhile, I'm completely speechless. But good for her for joining the campaign.

    Maybe she thought she looks good in white?

    I think a lot of repgu women (and probably if you scratch the surface) repug men support gay rights, abortion rights, etc. Remember that the Bush women are known for supporting abortion rights but keep their yaps shut so their menfolk can get elected. How fucking noble of them. Maybe I don't hate Cindy McCain quite so much right now.
