Harry Reid’s spokesperson basically says that Reid isn’t that committed to pushing people to vote for repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell — even though he supports repeal, and the Republicans say they’re going to block the bill.
I’m pretty sick of people saying they support repeal and then not actually giving a crap about it. I wish America as a whole would just quit all the politically correct doublespeak. If you don’t care about repeal, just say you don’t care about it. I’m tired of playing these games.
Captain Awesome was disappointed to hear that the brief period of DADT suspension had ended yesterday. She normally just shrugs off the latest news (she doesn’t get a lot of it where she is, and I think looking it up on the internet bums her out). But yesterday she was audibly frustrated.
She feels rightfully indignant — she signed up to work for the U.S. government, to fight for U.S. interests overseas — and the people who accepted her promise to lay down her life if necessary can’t even STOMACH her.
That’s nice, U.S. military. Real nice.
