And that is exactly what is happening: Congress is leaving the method and timing of the end of DADT up to the military.
So what exactly have you been ranting about?
But let us get back to the topic: Outing politicians.
Ah, but I haven't been ranting.

For some time now, when the subject of DADT has come up I've pretty much offered the same opinion as I gave above. That has triggered much "ranting" from those who are offended that I dare disagree with homosexual dogma.

I've already stated my position on whether forcibly outing homosexuals is a good thing. As usual, that was dragged into side channels.

There is plenty of anecdotal evidence supporting the opposite conclusion. They gays may be closeted and married to someone of the opposite sex, but they're still gay.
I agree, for the reasons you've cited, that openly gay people are underrepresented in Congress. The idea that so many are in the closet, ironically, would help explain the fear and cowardice when gay issues arise.
Mike Rogers has been working on outing for years. There just are not that many closet cases in Congress. These secrets are hard to keep in Washington, where everyone knows who's going to what parties or bars. Or train station restrooms, a la Craig. It really is impossible to be a public figure and keep your sexual orientaiton or activities secret. Too many people know.

So I conclude that Congress is underrepresented with respect both to openly gl Congresspersons and with respect to closet cases.

Staffers on the other hand: Heavily gay.

Yes, let's get back to the topix, This wandering always seems to happen, at first, VENTING, then Name calling, then going totally off the subject... The limited attention-span seems to dominate...

It helps us. One by one; when we out a politician, it frees him to vote favorably on gay rights issues.

No, Whinealot, they don't...but I'm not surprised that they're part of your vocabulary. I'm sure that your psychoanalyst has given you many insights of that nature about yourself.
I'm not surprised that you are ignorant about the process of psychoanalysis.
