Question: What separates us from every other member of NATO besides Turkey? If you can't figure it out, try to answer this one: What do the Israelis, Germans, Russians, and members of the armed forces in the UK have in common?

Today the Republicans managed, because we now apparently live in a nation for which 60 (rather than 51) of 100 constitutes a majority in the Senate, to table a vote on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. The final vote was 56-43. According to the Los Angeles Times, blocking the bill also blocks passage of the "Dream Act," a route to citizenship for illegals who nonetheless protected our country by serving in the armed forces.
Yet another shining moment in U.S. history.
