  1. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    So, all the states in the west and east, voted to repeal DADT.

    And, with little surprise, all the white trash states in the south like Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee voted against.

    You think we can get the Mason Dixon line back and build a fence to keep those southern yahoos away from us?

  2. R.J. says:

    It figures Miss Lindsey would vote no. I hate her.

  3. zarathustra says:

    Yes, gay men. & women have the same right to die in. America’s useless wars as anyone else does………………..

  4. libhomo says:

    Interesting that only one of the three well known closeted gay Republicans in the Senate voted to overturn the ban.

  5. Randy Arroyo says:

    Mitch McConnell voted “No.” Well, isn’t this interesting? Obama allowed him to write the measure extending the Bush era tax cut on millionaires and exempting the first $5 million from estate taxes which benefits only 6,600 Americans and McConnell still couldn’t bring himself to vote to repeal DADT. Obama needs to learn to keep his true friends closer and his frenemies at arms length.

  6. Kate Novotny says:

    Sen. David “diapers” Vitter voted no? ROFL! What a damned douche.

  7. Jolly Roger says:

    Look at that roster, and tell me there aren’t two Americas.

    I want to give them back Dixie, and force them to move. Let them set up that hellhole of a third-world theocracy they are always trying to put together.

  8. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    To the senate list who voted to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” may I say thank you and job well done.

    To the senate list who voted against repeal, may I say screw you, and now America sees how deep your hatred is for gay people. You are all on the wrong side of history and I predict you will one day very soon regret your stupidity and ignorance.

  9. Greg Equality Lengkong says:

    Miss Lindsey Graham voted “NAY.” Very interesting indeed.

    Maybe she thinks her vote will make her a he-man in the eyes of her South Carolina constituents? Seriously girl, the thing that will make you look more butch is to stop wearing floral Muumuus when you host a dinner party.

  10. retahyajyajav says:

    A heartfelt thanks to the 63 senators who voted to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. You’ve made me proud to be an American and proud of my elected lawmakers.

    To the 31 southern, Republican douchebags who voted against the repeal, I can only think of two words: FUCK YOU.

    When the history of 2010 America is written, I feel sorry for you because you will be forever be memorialized as being on the wrong side of history and motivated by nothing more than homophobia.

  11. chlost says:

    So- the four Republicans who didn’t vote didn’t have an opinion on this issue? What chicken shits.

  12. Big Hank says:

    Both of my senators are on the “Yea” list, I’m happy to see.

    It’s been a long, painful 17 years for gay Americans and their families. I never forgave Bill Clinton for DADT. I know his apologists say DADT was a compromise and the best he could do at the time. I don’t buy it and I see Clinton doesn’t buy it either. He’s said DADT is one of his biggest regrets.

  13. fran says:

    Thanks for publishing the list.

  14. Justin Sandoval says:

    No surprises from this list.

    All the GOP scum is well represented. Even the closet cases voted against repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and I predict, history will not be kind to these scalawags.

    True conservatives — Goldwater conservatives, don’t like the government engaging in discrimination against any group. The new conservatives are just bigots.
