Stopping By Senate Armed Services Committee To Say Hi To John McCain Didn’t Score Any GetEQUAL Activists An Arrest Record

I’ve been waiting to see if anything more would come out of GetEQUAL’s silent interruption of the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, where zappers from the gay group and Arizona-based H.E.R.O. held up signs that agitated Sen. John McCain. Except after the pro-DADT senator left the room, well, the fun fizzled. No arrests made? Does that mean they failed? Sen. Harry Reid filed cloture on the DADT-laden Defense budget bill, in unrelated news.

    How much were these drama queens paid? I bet they really scared McCain. This is just dumb.

    Our air fair was paid for, as was our hotel — a Motel 6. 4 to a room.

    That’s it.

    @marilove: It’s funny that this is such unpopular behavior you have to FLY ACTIVISTS TO LOCATIONS.

    When will you figure out this doesn’t help? Nobody cares. It just makes us look weak and/or crazy.
