    I didn't hear him saying anything about that. He bitched that liberals were going to be celebrating for most of the video. At the very end he mentioned a couple people he talked to thought the costs would be high.

    History already told us. It's not like we're the first country to do this. :P

    BUT BUT BUT WE'RE AMURRICA DAMNIT! What, our soldiers are less able to handle themselves as professionals than the French or British? I'll believe that when I see it.

    Yes, because aggravated assault is the reasonable reaction to someone hitting on you! (but only if it's a dude. when I hit on a chick it's totally ok)

    Shoulda bought some rope stock last week.

    In other words, the intolerant will not be tolerated. That's not exactly a message of peace and tolerance.

    The vote on the bill itself will come at 3 p.m., but that’s a formality. The roll: Six Republicans — Brown, Collins, Kirk(!), Murkowski, Snowe, and Voinovich — joined 57 Democrats to push it through.

    DADT is soon to be dead. Chalk one up for the good guys!....for America and American values. America has sent a message today to the bigots of this country that they will not be tolerated.
    Hooray! Now gay people can go kill Arabs for Haliburton! It's a great day for America... and damn great day.

    Actually, it is. Tolerance means you don't tolerate intolerance. Just like Love means you don't love hatred.

    By making this a leftist triumph you make it difficult for conservatives who have supported full civil rights for lgbt people. We feel like uselful idiots who have played into the hands of the left.
