Most of my friends and much of the mainstream media will view today's disgraceful Senate action in terms of its effect on the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." But it's much bigger than that.

The National Defense Authorization Act contains ALL of the funding for the Pentagon for the next fiscal year.

As the Republicans are so fond of reminding us, the United States is in a time of war.  TWO wars! And the GOP has just blocked consideration of the bill that funds the military.

I'm asking my friends in the LGBT community to back away from our own parochial concerns. I'm asking the media to back away from what they see as a hot button issue that will boost their ratings.

The GOP has just undercut our military in a time of war! They MUST be challenged on this! This borders on a treasonous act.

PLEASE - Don't let the GOP frame the terms of how the media covers this. Don't let the GOP own tonight's news cycle.
