Joe Lieberman is reportedly proposing a bill next week that would repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" law that prevents gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military. Jamie Kirchick, who interviews Lieberman, comments:
WASHINGTON - Just when you thought Joe Lieberman couldn't frustrate and perplex liberals any further, he is going off to become chief sponsor of the most significant piece of socially progressive legislation that Congress will deal with this year.
I'm still not sure why "frustrating and perplexing liberals" is such an accomplishment, but personally I'd be glad to see more "frustrating" and "perplexing" behavior along these lines.
