Gays Slug It Out

Tonight’s Ed Show on MSNBC featured blogger Mike Rogers from Raw Story and Christopher Barron of GoProud discussing the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Both applauded the action and vote. Rogers claiming that gays and lesbians had the right to be concerned over the White House strategy because the House with Republican leadership will not pass a repeal of the act.

Rogers challenged Barron on the Republicans votes and actions against the repeal of the bill. Rogers asked Barron where the conservatives were on the vote.

Rogers hammered Barron with facts about the average of 700 gays and lesbians discharged under the policy during the Bush years.

Barron said Chaney supported the repeal; Rogers said, yes when safely out of political office.

Barron called John McCain’s high-octane rhetoric against the repeal, McCain’s Terry Schiavo moment and was ashamed. He said this was so different than McCain in private.

Rogers jumped on his statement with, yes they’ll tell you thinkgs in private but behave differently in public.

Senator Jon Kyl went on Sunday talk shows and said repeal of the act could cost soldiers lives.

Is he wishing for that?
