Today the full Senate is to vote on the Defense Appropriation (close to 3/4 of a Trillion dollars) for the next fiscal year.
Attached to that bill is a provision repealing DADT. John McCain has sworn to vote against it. Lady Gaga is all for it (she wants a new bill, directed against homophobes in the military, called "If You Don't Like It, Go Home"). There's no telling, as yet, how Maine senator, Olympia Snowe, will vote.
But this is how I feel about the hows and whys and whine and horse-trade and politicking that have gone on for years.... DECADES... about me and about my rights (or lack thereof) simply because I am a gay American (and I got this from Bill Maher):
"I am TIRED of being the chick you're banging but are too ashamed to be seen with in public."
You (Mr. Ms. Madame Politician) will be forced to vote, up or down, on this. And all of us gay people will be watching.
Have a day, you slimy, rat-fink bastards.
