Let’s just say I probably shouldn’t post much of what my friend The Rude Pundit had to say about yesterday’s fiasco. It’s a bit raw, they might say. Here’s a snippet, with my editorial taming for sensitive Blenders.

That was some kind of kabuki sh*t yesterday in the Senate on the defense budget authorization bill with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in it. Honestly, the Rude Pundit’s having a hard time wrapping his head around this one. Sure, sure, it’s easy to say, “Those GOP c*cksuckers filibustered it because they hate the gays.” And that’s part of it. But this sh*t was just weird. We’re left with a whole lotta f*ck-you’s and not a lot of sense.

…F*ck John McCain and anyone who said “Let’s wait for the Pentagon study.” The DADT provision said outright that there would be no implementation until after the magical questionnaire o’ justice is done being tabulated by unbiased military people. (Seriously, has anyone else’s civil rights been subject to the results of a poll?)

F*ck Harry Reid for hastily bringing this up in order to get progressives vaguely excited about something for the midterms. Sure, now he can say, “See? Those bastards block everything,” but so f*cking what? (And f*ck the White House for doing nothing to help passage beyond a little press release. Hey, howzabout ending those discharges, your Commander-in-Chiefiness?)

Was that too raw?
