After DADT repeal, Ann Coulter reduced (or perhaps elevated) to vacuous snark

After one of Fox's brilliant commenters observed that years of softball practice has honed the grenade-throwing abilities of lesbians, another pointed out that women aren't allowed in combat units, eliciting the response: "Well, they should change that, too!" What did Ann Coulter add to this? Don't Ask, I Fell....asleep.

On Top Magazine reports that Robert Gates, speaking on Fox News, warned on Thursday that “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” remains in effect.
     The new law's language requires that the president and top Pentagon officials – Gates and Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – certify that the military is prepared for repeal. That condition was added in an effort to shore up Republican support for the bill.
     “Service members who alter their personal conduct during this period may face adverse consequences,” he added.
     Gates also said that troops who opposed the new policy will not be allowed to leave the military before their commitment is up.
     Aubrey Sarvis, executive director of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), called on Gates to suspend all investigations during the interim period.
