Quote of the Day

"Twelve dimensional chess, assholes!"—Me, upon reading that Servicemembers United, a nonprofit organization representing LGBTQ active servicemembers and veterans, was not invited to the launch of Michelle Obama's and Jill Biden's Joining Forces initiative, "a program meant to raise awareness of the challenges faced by members of the military and their families," because, according to the office of the First Lady, Don't Ask Don't Tell "still remains the law." Indeed. A law which, as Servicemembers United's executive director Alexander Nicholson points out, "does not apply to the civilians who work at their advocacy and service organizations."

[H/T to Spudsy, who wryly comments: "Don't invite, don't include."]
