Bob Barr, of all people, now opposes "don't ask, don't tell"

Don't Ask, Who Cares - "Asked about reconsideration of the don't ask, don't tell policy in favor of a more open and honest approach, the simplistic responses by several Republican presidential candidates left me -- and I suspect many others -- questioning whether those candidates really even understood the issue, or were simply pandering to the perceived 'conservative base.' The fact is, equal treatment of gay and lesbian service members is about as conservative a position as one cares to articulate."
