DADT Survives


"The drive in Congress to repeal the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy appears all but lost for the foreseeable future, with action unlikely this year and even less likely once Republicans take charge of the House in January.

President Barack Obama has repeatedly said he wants to overturn the policy, which bans gays from serving openly in the armed forces. Advocates on both sides believed the issue had a chance of coming up in this month's post-election session of Congress. Now that looks unlikely."

Tell me again what Obama has done for gays? Besides make them wait?

The cynical response would be that he's shown gays that the Democrats care about their rights about as much as Republicans care about the rights of the unborn. Enough to talk about it, but not enough to actually do anything.

And I think the cynical response is probably about right.
