Gillibrand: DADT firebrand

by Jeremy Hooper

This letter just hit the G-A-Y inbox:

Picture 8-153

Hillary Clinton's shadow is certainly a formidable one. But it's good to see that as Sen. Gillibrand seeks her own time in the sun, she's remembering to respect the rainbow. We applaud the junior senator.

**EARLIER: 7/27 Asking and telling may still be out of line. But as for hearing? [G-A-Y]
7/23: Don't ask about Gillibrand's bill -- signs don't tell her that there's cloture [G-A-Y]
7/13: Clinton's successor vs. Clinton era policy [G-A-Y]

I would think there's a lot more important thing on the table then some BS about the gay thing. Or maybe these left wingers are using the real issues for cover while they sneak in all there little socialist perks.

"some BS about the gay thing."

You're certainly right, Joe: The right and far-right's BS about the gay thing certainly is unimportant. That's why Sen. Gillibrand is trying to do something about it.

Being able to serve in the military is now a "socialist perq"? Usually it would be considered the opposite...
