  •  Thx, Don't think that you can count on McCaskill (0+ / 0-)

    The Assembly of God's huge world hqtrs are in Springfield, MO. for starters. She's got to protect her seat.

    My parents lived there for 15 years. I'm now in AR. No way will Lincoln or Pryor vote for this bill.

    I really think that the only way to end DADT is to get it into the DoD appropriations bill which would challenge McCain to put a hold on it to keep it in committee. This would force a showdown when the DoD can't meet it's payroll in either June or July. It would also provide CYA cover for those who have constituency challenges.

    •  That would explain her silence (0+ / 0-)

      To being publicly called out by Lt. Dan Choi and an advocacy group a few days ago.

      She doesn't get the luxury of sitting this fight out though. She's on the armed services committee, if she won't vote for folding the bill into the spending budget, the chances of repeal passing sink dramatically.

      @AlmightyGod Blasphemy is a victimless crime.
