You knew it was coming This is significant when you consider the fact that James Amos, the chief of the marine corps, is a homophobe and has come out strongly against DADT repeal. The Republican house is passing health care reform they know won't pass the senate. They're now going to try to block DADT repeal, which they know won't pass the senate. This is the best they have to offer. They don't have any real solutions for this country's problems. Just crap like this to fire up their right wing base.
