The measure to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” has passed the US Senate with a 65-31 vote, with only eight Republicans voting for the repeal. The bill is now en route to President Obama for a final signing. Even he can’t screw this up. (Okay, that was harsh. But frankly, this issue has been exhausting, and his constant pandering to both sides of the debate – as if there were two equal sides to the debate – hasn’t helped matters.)
I’ll let everyone else, most of whom are far better qualified and informed on the matter than I am, take care of writing the essays on the origins, life and long-overdue demise of that wretched policy, and what a more open and fair armed forces will do for the US in the long run. Me, I’ll just here and blog away with a smile on my face for most of the day.
