Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal passes! [Dec. 19th, 2010|06:25 pm]

The vote to end the filibuster passed 63-33 and the bill itself passed 65-31. Nate Silver points out that its public popularity probably encouraged some Republicans to vote for it.

I can't believe it actually passed. What windmill to tilt at next? (oh, right, same-sex marriage...)

Weird that presumably 2 people who were willing to filibuster turned around and voted for it...

I was actually hoping for DREAM Act, pt. 2. That's pretty fundamental to the further economic development of the US :(
