Swift Boat Veteran for Gay Truth

John-KerryWe’re overdue to wipe away the last stain of legal discrimination in our Armed Services,” said Senator Kerry. “Gays and lesbians should not have to hide who they are to be able to serve their country. President Obama, Admiral Mullen, Secretary Gates, former Secretary Powell, and – most importantly – our troops are speaking out, and it’s past time we listened.KERRY: IT’S PAST TIME WE LISTENED TO OUR TROOPS AND REPEALED ‘DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL’ [Facebook]

Kerry '04! Kerry '04! Kerry '04!

Good for Kerry though.
