The Good DADT News For Alexander Nicholson: He Can Finally Shut Down His Organization

Servicemembers United founder Alexander Nicholson, the only plaintiff named in the Log Cabin Republicans’ DADT lawsuit, always said the goal of his organization was … to bring an end to his organization. After yesterday’s ruling out of California, he might just accomplish that goal.

In January when Obama delivered his State Of The Union, Nicholson said the president “stepped up to the plate and made a firm commitment to work to finally end ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ in 2010.” We laughed at the time, in the “not funny” sense, because we knew Obama’s lip service meant little in the way of an actual commitment.

I have a feeling we’re going to be “laughing” again when Obama’s DoJ appeals the decision — which, as Barney Frank explains to Keith Olbermann, would be stupid.
