DADT Cloture Vote On Now. FAILS 57-40 Collins Votes Yes Anyway. UPDATE: They Never Give Up, Lieberman And Collins To Introduce Stand Alone DADT Repeal Bill

Susan Collins (Idiot, ME) was trying her best to sell out the Republican pledge to hold up everything until there was a vote on taxes and a Continuing Resolution. She was trying to work a deal with Harry Reid to move on the Defense Authorization Bill before those two issues were settled.

For some reason, Reid decided he'd cut off the negotiations and call up the bill. Collins showed up on the floor to ask Reid what was going on considering she seemed to think they were close to a deal. Reid basically told her to stuff it and moved to the vote.

Congratulations to Harry Reid for finding the one sure way to piss off a moderate...personally insult them.

As for Collins...she's an idiot.

Report: Brown and Kirk vote no. It won't pass.

Joe Manchin (I'm Kind Of A Republican For The Next 2 Years, WV) votes no.

So did Murkowski.

Wow, Collins votes Aye. Reid tells her to go to hell and she says, "Thank you for that informative suggestion, I will do just that!"

Joe Manchin, Scott Brown and.....Lisa Murkowski. Susan Collins is more RINO than Princess Lisa.

As I've said before, I'm meh on DADT as a whole. What I object to with Collins' action is it sold out the GOP pledge to hold everything up until taxes and CR were done. She sold out the whole caucus, something Murkowski (or Brown) wouldn't do. Disgusting.

UPDATE: It's alive.

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Thursday that he'll introduce a free-standing bill to repeal the military's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Lieberman said that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) agreed to bring legislation to the floor to do away with the military's prohibition on openly gay and lesbian service members.

Will Brown and Murkowski stand firm with the "Gang of 42" letter or will they sellout? Let's be honest, the smart money is on sellout.
