The DNC Wants To Own the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell News Cycle

If you happen to be searching Google News (but not Google’s regular search results) for headlines about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, like how tomorrow’s the deadline to submit the troop survey and just 25 percent of soldiers have done so, you might run into this sponsored link from Organizing for America, the Barack Obama post-election mobilization campaign that leads to My.BarackObama.com, which is run by the Democratic National Committee. There, the president’s head sits atop a web form where you can commit to “proudly stand with the President for the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.'” There is no check box for “LOL.”
