Joint Chiefs Chairman: Time to repeal 'Don't Ask Don't Tell'


Also, watch Joint Chiefs Chair Mike Mullen rock like a rocking thing while John McCain flip-flop like a fish in a bucket change his mind comes to an alternate conclusion about stuff he said last year. Bonus: Jeff Sessions' face after he figures out that he's up the creek without a paddle. Or a boat. Or a creek.




I think I have this right: If it's offered as part of a defence bill (which would make sense, because that's how DADT was introduced in the first place), Congress will need sixty votes not to GET a repeal, but to KILL one. *tiny squee of optimism*

"No matter how I look at the issue I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens."

How can there even BE an argument against this?


ETA: Oh, and also watch this: BBC Viewpoint: Gay US airman.

Thank you for posting this! I'd read an article about it but to see and hear it was wonderful.

Go here to hear someone obnoxiously express oppositional opinions that make zero sense. GLBT rights groups need more people like her making an arse out of themselves in national media. Also, awesome talk show host is awesome.

What I love is that Levin pointed out how screwed the conservatives are if they try to fight the repeal: they'll have to explain why this issue is more important that providing funding for the armed services.
