I don't know if you've heard, because literally nobody is talking about this everywhere in the country and in every major newspaper, so please allow me to break the news news: The U.S. Senate actually repealed Don't Ask, Don't Tell over the weekend! I know! Exciting news for people who are not filled like water balloons with boiling hot hatred!
Before the final vote, former presidential nominee and all-around classy guy Sen. John McCain took to the Senate floor to deliver a speech that will almost certainly be remembered by historians — along with Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream Speech" and Abraham Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address" — as one of the great pieces of inspirational rhetoric of the modern age. When this wise elder statesman opens his mouth, it seems almost as though he has an angel of the Lord singing Hosannas from the tip of his honeyed tongue.
I cannot express all the ways in which I was moved by this distinguished gentleman's heartfelt words, so I will allow him to speak them for you himself…
Oh, John McCain. You had me at "We are doing great damage"…
You had me at "We are doing great damage."
