Kirsten Gillibrand On Don't Ask, Don't Tell (Video)

Here's Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, on the Rachel Maddow show, talking about the long-overdue proposal of repealing DADT (and looking very senatorial, unlike Helicopter Harold). Scroll down for a view from the trenches.

"It now appears that Phyllis Schafly is in charge of the Pentagon, and our entire government. . . Oh, and in the meantime, they're going to implement the discriminatory policy in a more humane manner. Funny, but I don't recall that being Barack Obama's promise to my community. To more humanely discriminate against us. What is being discussed is another study to add to the pile of studies we already have. What is being discussed is a proposal to "change" DADT, rather than "repeal it." -- John Aravosis, Pentagon to announce 'year long' review of DADT, including whether DOD will be forced to recognize gay marriage
