Irony: Log Cabin Republicans Achieve What Congressional Democrats Could Not

The big news circulating throughout the blogosphere Tuesday afternoon is a report that a federal judge has halted the enforcement of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy which does not allow GLBT Americans to serve openly and honorably in the military.
Judge Virginia Phillips ordered the military "immediately to suspend and discontinue any investigation, or discharge, separation, or other proceeding, that may have been commenced" under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
Levine, Adam (2010-10-12). Judge orders military to stop enforcing 'don't ask, don't tell'. CNN. Retrieved on 2010-10-12.
This ruling is a pure case of irony.
Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) was not ended due to a Democratic Congress enacting legislation repealing the military policy. DADT was struck down due to legal action filed by the Log Cabin Republicans.
Now THAT'S ironic.
