The report is out – “About 70 percent of active-duty personnel believe dismantling “don’t ask, don’t tell” would have a positive effect on the military – or no effect at all.” If this isn’t enough to get the Senate to dump this unpleasant, wasteful law what is? The military leadership says get it done.
Now let’s see what newly elected and allegedly gay Senator Kirk of IL does on this one. Does he have the “cojones” to buck his party leadership, John McCain and his alleged “sister” in the Senate Senator Graham of South Carolina? Do the ideological sisters from the East, Collins and Snowe have the gumption to do what is right and anger the grumpy old men running the parry of no? Does the ethically challenged and sexually damaged Senator from NV want to get re-elected enough to trawl for the GLBT votes and money in 2012? Does Murkowski have the chops to say “f.u.” to the old dudes who jumped on the Miller bandwagon and show her independence? Does Voinovich have the independence to do what is right? Time will tell if these elected officials want to represent the will of people and want to be on the right or wrong side of history with their votes for this important civil and equal rights issue.
