John McCain: Will He Say It at CPAC? No!

The Republican front-runner, Senator John McCain [AZ], has called upon Americans not only to support our military, but to serve in our military. This comes at the end of his Message to Our Troops video:

I also strongly urge men and women to serve in the military as well as support those in the military.

As Sen. McCain supports the current "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy banning non-heterosexuals from military service, we assume that the above is addressed exclusively to heterosexuals.

So, here's the big question: Will Sen. McCain say this at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which opens today in Washington, D.C.?

Major hat tip to Robert Hamer and AmericaBlog

Update: He didn't say it. Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan.

He'll say anything he needs to say to try to convince them he's conservative.

In other words, he's NOT going to urge all those healthy heterosexual young conservative males to Be A Man! Enlist!?

You know, like they only support a war if "other people" actually fight it?

The reason the Yellow Elephants are scared shitless of McCain is because they figure once he becomes President he will be in a position to force them to back up their tough talk.

John McCain is the candidate who is most likely to institute a military draft.

The Yellow Elephants don't want their empty bluster and cowardly braggadocio to be exposed .

I doubt a draft would affect many of the Yellow Elephant types. They can always get their docotrs to write bogus notes to get them out of it, like Limbaugh's, or whine about some knee injury that doesn't seem to bother them 30 years later, like Buchannon. Or, they could just go Newty and get college deferrments.
And then they will still question the patriotism of those who DO serve and are against the war.
