GOProud — the 527 political organization intended to represent the slim special interest group of LGBT conservatives who are not currently closeted — last night retweeted a message from its founder and CEO Christopher R. Barron concerning just who is to blame for the Don't Ask, Don't Tell'd dismal showing on the Senate floor yesterday.
And, if you ask me, the answer is pretty obvious…
Hmmmm… Harry Reid. Of course! That makes perfect sense at first blush, but what if we take a closer look at the numbers…
60 - The number of votes the repeal provision would need to defeat a filibuster by Republicans
57 - The number of senators who voted for repealing DADT
40 - The number of senators who voted against repealing DADT
39 - The number of Democrats who voted for repealing DADT (Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, was the one dissenting Democrat vote)
1 - The number of Republicans who voted for repealing DADT (Susan Collins, of Maine)
0 - The number of Harry Reids who voted against repealing DADT
Well, you can't argue with numbers like that! Totally, totally Harry Reid's fault. That jerk!
