Because the Grinch doesn't win: Pro-fairness Sens. push SB 4022

by Jeremy Hooper

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and GOP Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) have made it official:

SENATE BILL 4022 TO REPEAL 'DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL' INTRODUCED [Towle]

The bill will go straight to the floor, thanks to a little known provision called Rule 14.

The moderate Republicans will go straight to "aye," thanks to little known reasoning not to.

This policy will inevitably go to the dustbin of history, thanks to a much known ruler that measures the longterm arc rather than short-term partisan whims.

That's the plan, at least.
