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.
