DADT Is No More.

Thanks goes out to the following republican Senators for bucking the idiocy of their party’s social conservative base: Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mark Kirk of Illinois, John Ensign of Nevada, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, George Voinovich of Ohio, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine. None of these guys can be expected to run for President in 2012, as the base will be keen on bringing Palin to the front of the line.

I know I have been critical of Democrats for dragging their feet on this (which they did) but again, I want to convey my thanks to them, and especially Harry Reid, for finally getting this through the Senate.

The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network must be given a special nod, as they have been advocating repeat since the policy was put in place (thank you Dale Carpenter for reminding me of that).

PS. Obama, time to drop the DOJ challenge to the Log Cabin Republicans challenge to DADT.

I was so hoping to never see this happen again in my lifetime… Sigh.
