You wouldn’t necessarily know that Sen. Joseph Lieberman is in the middle of the fray over Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. After all, he hasn’t gotten any tweets from Lady Gaga, the pop singer who is creating political waves with her push for repeal of the Pentagon’s ban on gays serving openly in the military.

Last week, she tweeted her supporters, urging them to call Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and press for a vote on repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, of which Lieberman is a lead sponsor. But Lieberman seemed a little flummoxed when asked if he’d heard from Lady Gaga on the issue. No, he said, adding that just the prospect of uttering her name and Reid’s in the same sentence was “fun” and “therapeutic.”
