In this press conference from last night, Sens. Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins seem pretty convinced that the 60 (or more?) votes for repealing DADT exist somewhere on the Senate floor and that it's just a matter of uncovering them at the right time and under the right conditions.
I had no idea that legislative work was so similar to the Raiders of the Lost Ark video game for Atari 2600. Jeeze! I hope Lieberman is able to find a shovel in the Black Market and cross the mesa toward the Map Room to find the location of the Lost DADT Repeal Votes before the sun sets on the Lame Duck Session. Or before he gets spit on by a cobra.*
Given their frustrations with the timing of the vote, it sounds like there may be some credence to Christopher R. Barron and GOProud's claim that fault for the DADT repeal failure lies (at least in part) with Harry Reid.
Still, a bunch of gay Republicans blaming a Democrat for a near-unanimous voting down by Republicans is about as rational as being a gay Republican.
* Please feel free to mentally replace this non-timely reference with practically any other one from any time during the past 20 years.
