House messes with DADT. Obama fights back. Did you know that Obama officially “supports DOMA’s repeal?” ‘Cause he does. Bam.
Katie Miller is the best cadet to ever not be allowed back into West Point yet.
This took forever because Dinah Shore but hey look, progress is being made with DADT and also the rest of the world seems pretty ok right now!
Have you forgotten about DADT now that the judicial brouhaha is over? The answer had better be no, because our servicemembers definitely haven’t. Here’s what the deal is for them right now.
Gabrielle Giffords’ condition is rapidly improving, and hopefully soon she’ll be able to speak! Some officials want women to have more prospects in the military; Chris Colfer wants what’s best for Kurt, Jessie J on Gaga, sexy photoshoot interpretation of Lisbeth Salander, and Jackass does Black Swan.
Now that John McCain lost the fight, he has reluctantly decided to do his job and go along with the ruling resulting from the fight that he lost. He’s a big guy.
When FOX News is the one telling you that DADT is a pointless policy, it’s probably true. How did they come to realize this, and why won’t other conservatives do the same?
Listen I have to tell you something. I know you didn’t ask, but I need to tell you something — Obama signed the DADT repeal, Dan Choi is smiling, Barney Frank blasts a stupid conservative reporter, ROTC might return to Ivy League Schools, Obama talks DOMA w/the Advocate, John McCain is angry forever — look. Just read it.
DADT was repealed! Mostly! Now what?
Did you think it might turn out to have been not real the next day? GUESS WHAT. IT STILL HAPPENED. Also other stuff! Like Tegan and Sara and a new It Gets Better video and an interview with that cast of Skins and SUBWAY FEMINISM.
WE WON A THING
suck it, john mccain
“My breakdown was a result of a cumulative array of stressors but there is no doubt that the composite betrayals felt on Thursday, by elected leaders and gay organizations as well as many who have exploited my name for their marketing purposes have added to the result. I am certain my experience is not an isolated incident within the gay veteran community.”
We haven’t completely given up hope on a DADT repeal this year, and if there’s any grace in the world we’ll be rewarded for that with the new bill being pushed through Congress before the end of the year.
Today the Senate failed to pass DADT, thanks to senators like Scott Brown and John McCain, and more specifically failed tens of thousands of gay and lesbian servicemembers.
these are the people who could be defending their country but are not. photos = stunning
Harry Reid compares McCain to Lucy from Peanuts. Jon Stewart rips McCain a new one. An actual Marine who served openly for 4 years comes forward to say a repeal “will work.” But above all, for a ‘lousy student’ and ‘misogynist’ who used nepotism to get into the army and, once there, was not quite the hero he says he was — McCain sure claims to know a lot about unit morale.
DADT Hearings, Part Three, in which I AM GOING TO PUNCH JOHN MCCAIN IN THE F*CKING THROAT
“I believe that the impact would be devastating to me, my family, my unit, the military, our country and the world!”
The survey is in! Guess what? We were totally right. John McCain says it’s the wrong survey and also, he ate his meat so why hasn’t he gotten is pudding and also he wasn’t invited to Gates’ birthday party and also he’s cast in the chorus of Little Red Hen and he wanted to be the Little Red Hen and NO THAT IS NOT THE FORK HE WAS TALKING ABOUT he wants the Winnie-the-Pooh fork.
