A DADT Reality Check

More

A new poll:

77 percent of Americans say gays and lesbians who publicly disclose their sexual orientation should be able to serve in the military. That's little changed from polls over the two years, but represents the highest level of support in a Post-ABC poll. The support also cuts across partisan and ideological lines, with majorities of Democrats, Republicans, independents, liberals, conservatives and white evangelical Protestants in favor of homosexuals' serving openly.

McCain wants to filibuster a measure with 77 percent public support, majorities in both Houses, the support of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and a Republican defense secretary? When it could also be chaotically imposed by the courts at a moment's notice?
