Georgetown Residents Fire Back at McCain

Wednesday, 22 Dec 2010 12:15 PM

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., took a swipe at the residents of the tony Washington, D.C., neighborhood of Georgetown last week during the debate over repealing the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. And john,mccain,georgetown,salons,miltary,gays,now those residents are shooting back, Politico reports.

McCain said "the salons of Georgetown and other liberal bastions here around the country" can't relate to the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers. That remark was fodder for Beth Solomon, publisher of The Georgetown Dish website.

"The salons of Georgetown owe Sen. McCain a huge debt of gratitude – they'd be nowhere without him. We feel a bit hurt that Sen. McCain didn't criticize The Georgetown Dish. We're kind of a 21st century salon – at least we try," she tells Politico.

Among the more mild comments from readers on her site: "Poor John McCain is really losing it," and "McCain is mentally ill."
