DADT: Ed Martin says 80% of Americans are "Out of Touch"

According to a recent CNN poll, 80% of Americans are in favor of allowing openly gay people to serve in the military. In fact, 6 out of 10 Republicans support the change. Yet former Matt Blunt Chief of Staff Ed Martin recently wrote that Congressman Russ Carnahan is "out of touch with the people of the third district," because Carnahan voted to end the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy that prohibits gay and bisexual people from openly serving in the military.

Martin ironically ends with the following quote:
The people of Missouri’s 3rd district need a leader – someone who will put their priorities at the top of the list and not the agenda of Washington insiders.
Ummm, actually Ed, given that 80% of the population supports changing this discrimnatory law, you are the one who's out of touch.
