DADT Open Thread
So yes, DADT has been repealed. A great day, and one that I feel confident history will remember as a step forward. (I also know that conservatives hate it when I talk that way. Sorry, can’t help it this time.)
One thing that history won’t remember, but that will certainly be true, is that the Democrats chose the single moment in all the possible permutations of the election cycle when it would cost them the very least — when an election has just been held, when it costs the least in their own members’ cushy seats, when many of them are leaving anyway, and when they can spend the next two years complaining about an agenda not of their own making.
Still, well done.
