57-40

Don’t you love the filibuster? 57 Senators support voting on a defense bill that includes repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, but the 40-Senator “majority” wins the day.

Most shameful of all, one of my Massachusetts Senators, Scott Brown supports repeal of DADT but voted against it because of process. Would he have voted to keep black soldiers in segregated units because of he didn’t get to vote on taxes first too?

I think this gets at how I feel.

I respect those who are not going to say anything more than I do those who get up and try to make it about something else.
