Dan Choi appeared on the Chris Matthews show and was asked why Congress would not repeal Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell even though the majority of Americans are in favor the law being dumped.

Unfortunately, the usually eloquent soldier stumbled with this one, so I’ll help him out:

Too many  members of the Republican Party work for the conservative movement rather than for America. They are kowtowing to an increasingly conservative base, in an effort not to draw Tea Party challengers in their next primaries. This is why they refuse to follow the will of the American people. They only serve a thin slice of the electorate – the conservative GOP primary voter.

Well, there you have it.
