She focused in Representative Austin Scott (R-GA) asking about the cost and being told that $10,000 had been spent on training materials. Ms Dowd nots that the Representative "harrumphed":
If something was done at D.O.D. for $10,000, I would like to know what it was.I am with Representative Scott.
I am sure that allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the military will provide fodder for Columnists for the whole year. There are going to be problems as this all settles out. People will make mistakes and overstep what DoD thinks of as the rules of the game. In the end, with or without the attention of the press, this will work out—or it won't. My money is on it working out. The attention of the MSM will have little impact on the outcome. But, it will allow us, the Great American Public, to be voyeurs in this process.
There are many more important issues for Ms Dowd to pay attention to. With regard to DADT going away, it is all going to work out swell.
