DADT Repeal: Thank You Elaine!

Jim Burroway

July 22nd, 2011

Timothy Kincaid extends his appreciation to Log Cabin Republicans for their tireless efforts in helping to secure DADT’s repeal. I initially had a much harder time singling out one individual or organization for finally getting this repeal done.

And then I thought of Elaine Donnelly.

Her consistently incompetent appearances before Congress, her desperate attempts at building support for DADT’s retention, her weirdly fraudulent polls — I mean really. Can there be any doubt that Donnelly was at least as effective in moving DADT’s repeal forward as the Human Rights Campaign?

Thank you Elaine!  I’m raising my margarita glass tonight to you!

and we’ll be raising our glasses too, Mr. Burroway. Thank you again for the efforts of BTB in this fight for justice.

Yes! Absolutely.

Here’s to you, Elaine.

You queens do not play nice. That’s why I like y’all.

I imagine the studies and polls will only get more outrageous and hilarious as time goes on and not much happens as a result of the repeal of the law. But I guess it’ll always be the “San Francisco military” to her no matter what happens, deluded little thing.

Now, that’s a long, tall, cool glass of schadenfreude.

Yeah but Jim, you gotta read her comments on this:

Awwwww…I enjoyed that! :)

Thanks Elaine, everyone knows you are a crazy con artist now. Time to get a real job.

Mr.Burroway, I love the way your mind works.

Elaine Donnelly is a vicious, lying scam artist. She deserves oblivion. I’m so glad her “tax problems” are coming to light now. That “mugshot” captures the real Elaine – hate competing with ignorance.

Here’s more information about Elaine and her sleazy Center for Military Readiness than you probably ever wanted to know:

The leading opponent of repealing the Pentagon’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and a decades-long critic of expanded opportunities for military women runs a nonprofit organization [out of her house] that watchdog groups say has filed inaccurate and misleading reports to the IRS, lacks a credibly independent board and is operating uncomfortably close to the line that separates education from lobbying.

Like most highly vocal and invested anti-gay zealots, Elaine is surely destined to be an irrelevant deadender drooling in a nursing home muttering, “What the hell hapapened?”
