Just saw that the Administration is putting language into the Defense Reauthorization Bill to repeal DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL – a policy that was one of Bill Clinton’s lowest moments. This has always been a case of the nation being miles ahead of the elected ones. Clinton announced his intention to repeal the ban on gays in the military and backed right down to this silly compromise. And what did he get for it – the anger of most Dems for sure, and absolutely no relief from those he was trying to assuage. They were going to keep going after him no matter what. And I know, he had to give cover to congress critters. It’s a bad excuse and it’s become the normal excuse for not doing the right thing.
In any case, we’ll see how it goes this time. Expect the usual heads to explode.
