Today, the military’s (or should I say Congress’s?) policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has come to an end. It’s high time that happened, though news reports say that many in Congress are troubled by the policy’s demise. Could this become a campaign issue, at least in the search for a Republican presidential candidate? Who knows?
From the beginning, the only words appropriate to describing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell have been “morally bankrupt.” It’s appropriate to take a short time-out for celebration of its demise.
Next target: the misleadingly named Defense of Marriage Act.
