The compromise isn’t great, but it’s a step in the right direction, and I feel more comfortable with it with Patrick Murphy leading the way. Before the interview, Rachel points out how stupid and disingenuous it is that extremist right-wingers keep framing DADT repeal as something fringe or liberal, considering the fact that 75% of Americans support it. The 25% who still support DADT are, perhaps not coincidentally, also the 25% of Americans who would most benefit from protective helmets.
