'Bout Time Someone Said It

(Someone in the MSM, I mean.) You go, Frank Rich:

John McCain, commandeering the spotlight as usual, did fulminate against the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” But the press focus on McCain, the crazy man in Washington’s attic, was misleading. His yapping was an exception, not the rule.

The whole column is pretty encouraging.

Which, BTW, doesn't mean we should let up on the pressure. And here's a good thing to keep in mind, should others start taking their cue from Angry Johnny (the 2010 edition, I mean):

Recalcitrant Congressional Republicans will have to explain why their perennial knee-jerk deference to “whatever the commanders want” extends to Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. Stanley McChrystal on troop surges but not to Mullen, who outranks them, on civil rights.

As in, Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
