DADT Hearings to Begin This Week, McCain and Graham Vow to Block Repeal

The Pentagon announced last week that it will release the results of the Working Group study tomorrow, a day earlier than planned, so that hearings on on repealing the anti-gay policy can begin asap during the few remaining weeks of the current legislative session. The hearings could begin this week.

Meanwhile, the always effeminate Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appearing on Fox "News" Sunday, told Chris Wallace that there are not enough votes in the senate to pass DADT repeal during the lame duck session. Graham told Wallace "DADT is "not going anywhere."

Over at CNN's State of the Union, fellow douchebag John "Grumpy Old Man" McCain called for more and more studies and said that the troops ought to have a vote on DADT repeal. Has anyone checked his meds lately?

McCain told Candy Crowley that Obama's promise to repeal the policy was made by "...made by an inexperienced president or candidate for presidency of the United States." He added, "The military is at its highest point in recruitment and retention and professionalism and capability, so to somehow allege that this policy has been damaging the military is simply false. So the fact is that this system is working."

If by "working" he means that it DADT is successfully violating the rights of service members, punishing them for their honesty and depriving the military of qualified personnel, then he's right. Call your senators today at 202-224-3121 and tell them it's time to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
