Ron Paul votes to repeal “Don’t ask, Don’t tell”It is apparently a long journey politically from Texas to Maine.
In the Senate, ultra liberal Republican Susan Collins of Maine followed Paul’s example and voted with Democrats in Committee to approve the same amendment.
Collins' support is welcome on repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell but I agree with the sentiment expressed in this universe by the highly recommended Maine blog, Collins Watch:
But let's not pretend this makes Collins some sort of trailblazer for justice. It doesn't.
There was a time when this sort of stand would have really helped shake things up. But that time is long gone.
