234-194: House Passes Repeal of DADT

It's news all over the blogs, from msnbc.com, to andrewsullivan.com, towleroad.com to queerty.com: House passes repeal of DADT, 234-194.

I watched some of the talks on CSPAN. It was very hard to listen to some of the speeches: Rep. Buck McKeon, R of CA, was especially challenging to listen to. You would think that the open admission of LGBTQ people would bring down the military services. And the people who vote against ordination of LGBTQ people are often military leaders who would vote against repealing DADT.

There is a connection!

But the war is not over. Just one battle...to use military language. On to the U.S. Senate, where it will all be ugly again. And Sen. McCain is not being pretty about this at all.

Pace!
