Don't ask, don't tell, don't feel any shame.

Until the recent vote on DADT, the standard socially conservative excuse for opposing LGBT rights was an appeal to democracy. Now, when confronted with the fact that a majority of Americans favor repealing DADT, I hear social conservatives say that America is a republic, not a democracy, and even that democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner. It must be nice to have had your sense of shame surgically removed.
