The vote on the motion to proceed with the the annual defense appropriations authorization bill that includes a repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is scheduled for this afternoon.
With Jim Webb of Virginia dissenting, Harry Reid needs two Republican votes to overcome a filibuster and move the bill to a floor vote. The two most likely votes are the ladies from Maine, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe.
Accordingly, the country’s biggest anti-DADT advocate, Lady Gaga, trekked up to Portland yesterday to demonstrate in Collins’s and Snowe’s home state.
And, apparently, yesterday Lady Gaga also had a conversation with New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who supports repeal of DADT. Needless to say, yesterday and today’s debates over DADT will not go down as a bright spot in the annuls of U.S. political discourse..

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
