Todays number: 63
That is the number of yes votes in the Senate this morning to advance the vote to repeal of DADT this morning.
The DREAM act failed to advance, so it’s a good news bad news sort of Saturday. For the record, these Rethugs voted yes on DADT cloture:Sens. Brown, Collins, Kirk, Murkowski, Snowe, Voinovich.
UPDATE– DADT is finally dead. 65 senators rented a set of balls and voted for equality. A Thank you to them for finally recognizing there is no difference between a gay/lesbian soldier and straight ones.
