"The President is goddamned wrong on this"

That's the QOTW. Keith Olbermann, last night, on President Obama's pathetic lip service on repealing the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. Then today: a story that Robert Gates is proposing a "less draconian way" to enforce that rule.

Reports CNN: "For the first time, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is outlining potential Obama administration plans to enforce the "don't ask, don't tell" rule selectively so that some gays could serve in the military.


"Gates said he is looking at ways to make the policy 'more humane', including letting people serve who may have been outed due to vengeance or a jilted lover. The remarks appeared in a transcript the Pentagon released Tuesday."

Seems like the DOD is stranded in the Land of the Outlandish.

The President is goddamned wrong on this.
