Quick reax to Senate don't ask don't tell hearings
Watching the Senate Armed Services committee hearing on the Pentagon report on the repeal of don't ask don't tell is at once maddening and exhilarating.
Maddening because of the ignorance, stubbornness and willful disregard for the leadership of the military on display. Yes, I'm talking Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and now Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). Exhilarating because of the considered comments of other senators. I'm talking about Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.). His remarks were befitting a member of the world's most deliberative body. "It is wrong and un-American to discriminate against people because of their orientation," he said. Indeed it is. And it would be wrong and un-American for Republican senators to stand in the way of this shameful policy's demise.
