Smoke the Bigots Out of the Closet

That is the title of Frank Rich's column today in The New York Times.
A funny thing happened after Adm. Mike Mullen called for gay men and lesbians to serve openly in the military: A curious silence befell much of the right. If this were a Sherlock Holmes story, it would be the case of the attack dogs that did not bark.

John McCain, commandeering the spotlight as usual, did fulminate against the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” But the press focus on McCain, the crazy man in Washington’s attic, was misleading. His yapping was an exception, not the rule.

Rich comes through again with a great column. Read it all here.

I read Rich earlier - and he does a great job, as always, with this issue.

It is so insulting and infuriating to have this issue remain as an issue.
