Not Even Michelle Bachmann’s Own Party Supports Her Plan To Reinstate DADT

Even as recently this Tuesday, Republican Presidential Candidate Michelle Bachmann continues to prop her quickly deflating campaign on the empty promise that, if re-elected, she would reinstate “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Not only would the military probably consider that a counter-productive bit of political theatre, but even the constituents in her own party oppose the move.

According to a new CBS poll, 48 percent of all Republicans support the ability for gay and lesbians to serve openly in the military and only 41 percent oppose it. Stick with the federal marriage amendment to ban marriage equality, Bachmann… at least 48 percent of all Americans still support that.
