As if it’s not bad enough that Obama has proved himself a weakling on LGBT measures and something as simple as the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” has turned into a HUGE clusterfuck, now comes the proof that we’ve all needed that the Democratic party is truly smoking crack up on Capital Hill. Traitorous douchebag Democrat Joe (Must Go) Lieberman, who single handedly screwed Health Care Reform has told tells Jamie Kirchik at the New York Daily News that he’ll be the chief sponsor of legislation to repeal the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy.
“My own experience as a member of the Armed Services Committee, visiting our troops on bases here in this country and abroad, particularly in war zones, the most remarkable quality you’ll find is unit cohesion,” he told me. “What matters is not the gender of the other person in your unit or the color or the religion or in this case the sexual orientation. It’s whether that person is a good soldier you can depend on. And that’s why I think it’s going to work…I see this as an extension, the next step of the civil rights movement.”
Well isn’t that precious, now we can add a scumbag political opportunist to the two war criminals (Cheney and Powell) who support the repeal of DADT. It’s scary to me that our cast of allies is starting to look like the Legion of Doom.
What further prrof do we need that the Democratic Party, Obama, and Congress care little for us?. They put the face of the most hated member of Congress front and center– that’ll kill the DADT repeal for sure.
This is a travesty.
