Putting the Lame in "Lame Duck"

You know, when you get right down to it, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" may very well be the lamest public policy position we've ever let the Squeamish Right impose on the rest of the nation. Polls indicate upwards of 80% of Americans don't have much problem with letting gays serve in the military. A report due in December is going to show that a strong majority of military personnel are unopposed to fighting side by side with "teh gays." Just last week, Defense Secretary Robert Gates again asked Congress to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell. And now it looks like the recently cowed Democrats are even going to let this one last opportunity to do something right -- to quash this idiotic, homophobic, 19th-century policy -- go by the wayside.
