Ding-Dong, DADT’s Dead

HOORAY! Chalk another one up for human rights in the world. After 17 ridiculous years, and after a theatrical performance from republican bigots like Jon ‘get off my lawn’ McCain so long it lasted for years, gay people can finally openly serve in the military. Never mind you were among the last NATO nations to drop the discrimination (it was you and that bastion of progressiveness, Turkey left in that race). Canada’s been open to teh gay dying for freedom since 1992, so hey, 18 years later isn’t that bad.

I’m not holding my breath for any other improvements in American social policy (universal health care, immigration reform, education and so forth), but congratulations all the same.
