They are taking another shot to shoot down DADT after it went down today in a cloture vote.

Collins should spend some overnights at a lesbian barracks and report on her experiences.

See, that was Reid’s gambit. To see if he could get Collins to vote Aye on the earlier cloture vote, even though it failed. Now he can try and push this through, since she has already reneged on her earlier pledge, along with all the other republicans, to vote NO on any matter brought forth prior to extending the tax cuts or a continuing resolution to fund the government.

I would expect this sort of faggotry from Collins and Reid, but not Lieberman.

Oh well. I guess a liberal is a liberal is a liberal.

It reminds me of an old joke my Italian brother-in-law loved to tell:

A man, obviously well-to-do, was talking to a beautiful woman in a bar. After drinks and some lovely conversation, he asked her if she would be willing to spend the night with him in his suite, and in the morning he would give her a million dollars. She was flattered that this obviously rich man was so interested in her, and agreed. A little while later, he asked if she would sleep with him for $100 dollars, to which she indignantly replied, “What kind of a woman do you think I am??” He responded, “Madam, we have already established that, now we are just negotiating the price!”

I think dingy Harry was not counting on Sen Manchin from WV voting no. That is a wild card. Watch for other Rats like Testor, Nelson, etc who are up for reelction in red states to get a little nervous about doing a stand alone vote for DADT. Harry is getting desperate.

Mormons must be so proud. I know Thomas S. Monson and Dallin Oaks are, Reid got them into see their buddy Obama. I guess supporting abortion, gay marriage, marxism, gambling and prostitution only keeps NON SENATORIAL MORMONS OUT OF THE TEMPLE. Only thing missing in this pic is Massachusetts liberal RINO Romney....

What do they care about gays in the military ?....Almost none of thier boys join it. While OUR sons are of fighting for our freedom, most of their are out recruiting for thier cult.

They are not honest, they are not patriots and THEY are not Christians.

I was shocked that she voted as she did. It appeared that she was genuinely offended by the amendment explanation she got from Reid. Just out of curiosity does anyone know anything about her health? The shaking and voice cracking is significant.

Just a reminder to all you RINO lurkers - once again, ANY true Conservative should be able to CLEARLY see that Lieberman is NOT one of us.

Not even CLOSE.

Don't know what the chance are. I guess it will fail too. From the Hill blog:


"Lieberman plans standalone repeal of 'Don't ask, don't tell'

By Michael O'Brien - 12/09/10 04:40 PM ET

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Thursday he'll introduce a free-standing bill to repeal the military's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Lieberman said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) agreed to bring legislation to the floor to do away with the military's prohibition on openly gay and lesbian service members.

The Connecticut independent said he would introduce the legislation as soon as today with language that mirrors an amendment to the defense authorization bill.

Senators failed to begin debate on that defense bill in a vote Thursday afternoon, and even some Republicans who favor repealing "Don't ask, don't tell" voted to sustain a filibuster."

I thought all republicans agreed to do nothing til else til the tax issue is settled.

I count 12 democrat senators up for election in 2012 who are also in traditionally middle of road or more conservative states.

List in order of most political injury caused by a pro-DADT vote, imho:

Jim Webb, Virginia
Bill Nelson, Florida
Sherrod Brown, Ohio
Ben Nelson, Nebraska
Claire Mccasiil, Missouri
Bob Casey, Pennsylvania
John Tester, Montana
Kent Conrad, N Dakota
Herb Kohl, Wisconsin
Bob Menendez, New Jersey
Jeff Bingamen, New Mexico
Debby Stabenow, Michigan

Jim (& Mod): Do we really have to stand this kind of a comment...where a FREEPER is accusing another FREEPER of wanting to be a mass murderer?

It's one thing to vehemently disagree with another poster, but when one projects the other as a future mass murderer, that's beyond the pale.

To me, that is a zottable offense.

Wow! Look @ post #24 and compare it to your response to post #18. #18 is mild by comparison...but that doesn't trigger or provoke a response from you as being "over the top. Not in a good way." (Only post #18, eh?)

Common sense isn't always so common in what we Free Republicans need to be provoked about, priority-wise.

Collins needs her butt kicked by the GOP leadership. I would not let this woman serve on any important committee, and I sure as heck would not let her chair one. She needs to be taken out to the woodshed. I am not one for writing Washington, but this makes me angry enough to write.

Things were so bad for women soldiers back 30 years ago where I was stationed that the barracks were all made co-ed and the all female barracks were dismantled.

This is the sort of stuff that is simply never ever addressed by the Media.

I knew one particular poor girl that was so petrified of the women's barracks that she intentionally got herself knocked up in order to get an Honorable and outta that Hell.

That was after months of persecution by the Dykes who compelled her to remain locked in her dorm and afraid to even come out at night to use a toilet.

Isn’t Collins up in 2012? This is where McConnell needs to sit her down and tell her if there is a more conservative candidate in the primary, she is getting tossed overboard. So what if a democrat wins the seat; what’s the difference?
