Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repealed

It's old news but I'd like to mention here the Republican and Independent Senators who voted to repeal the decade old ban that prohibits gay servicemen and -women from openly serving in the military.

Scott Brown of Massachusetts, John Ensign of Nevada, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Olympia Snowe of Maine and George Voinovich of Ohio.

They stood up against what was a bigoted and wrong policy even if the majority of their fellow GOP legislators opposed repeal.

Jim Bunning of Kentucky, Judd Gregg of New Hampshireand Orrin Hatch of Utah didn't cast a vote.
