DADT vote in bed before '11? The gentlewoman from California says aye

by Jeremy Hooper

Nancy-PelosiThe Senate Armed Services committee is the big focus in terms of needed votes, and everyone should remember to be in contact with those key 6 members!! However, this blip from D.C. Agenda is still great, promising news in the fight to end a debate that we should have ended almost two decades ago:

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning to hold a vote this year in her chamber of Congress for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal, according to her office.

“It is the Speaker’s intention that a vote will be taken this year on ['Don't Ask, Don't Tell'] in the House,” Drew Hammill, a Pelosi spokesperson, told DC Agenda in a statement Monday.
...
Michael Cole, a Human Rights Campaign spokesperson, praised Pelosi for planning the vote.

“As we’ve been saying for a long time now, the time to repeal the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ law is this year, and it’s a positive sign to hear congressional leaders affirm that,” Cole said.

Social conservatives are said to already be readying their Botox and "San Francisco-style values" attack lines.

**Oh, and do you doubt that gay opponents would actually resort to "Botox" kinds of attacks? Well consider the fact that Concerned Woman For American Janice Crouse once, while distortedly defending Sarah Palin against supposed "attacks" on her femininity, described Pelosi as having a "surgically induced gash of a smile, which is hard to endure."
