Repeal DADT, If Only So We Can Move Beyond The Arguments Of ‘Juvenile Bigots’

Somehow when David Letterman and Bill O’Reilly sit down together, the conversation is more civilized than what happened on Joy Behar’s program last night. But I understand, because radio hosts Ron Reagan and Dana Lash (who also writes for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism) don’t often get a chance to shout over each other while their faces are plastered on the TV. Which means their little battle over what’s the more important legislation — omnibus spending or repealing DADT — comes down to an argument over whether lawmakers actually read the thousand-page bills they vote on. Of course where Lash fails is the same place McCain fails: by thinking that so long as gay soldiers shut up about their sexuality, they’d be fine. If only.
