Dont Ask Dont Tell REPEALED

“And no longer will many thousands more be asked to live a lie in order to serve the country they love.” – President Obama in a statement today.

It’ll soon be over. The Senate voted today 63-33 to stop debate and call for a vote. 3pm today, EST.

This is a good thing. In fact a great thing. This embarrassment of a national policy will soon be behind us. Proof that our government can do something positive.

Andrew Sullivan, who has been following this issue as closely as we have, has an endearing piece up today called “The Arc of History.” Reflecting on history and small incremental change. It’s quite a read. HIGHLY recommended.
