Pentagon not ga ga for Lady Gaga

Washington (CNN) – The Pentagon is trying to be low-key about today's Lady Gaga rally in Maine. When asked if Pentagon officials would be watching Lady Gaga's rally to urge Senators to repeal "don't ask don't tell" a senior defense official said, "No, not really."

A second defense official says the event is clearly aimed at the political side of the argument, and isn't likely to sway the minds of military officials one way or another.

The top brass is already on record with their opinions: both Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Admiral Mike Mullen have said publicly they support repealing "don't ask don't tell," but the defense official says troops as a whole have wildly different opinions on the issue.

Lady Gaga leading rally against military's 'don't ask, don't tell'

 Lady Gaga is headed to Maine Monday.
Lady Gaga is headed to Maine Monday.

Washington (CNN) - Pop star Lady Gaga will headline a rally in Portland, Maine, Monday calling on the state's two Republican senators to vote yes on taking up a defense bill that includes authorization to repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy toward gay and lesbian servicemembers.

A crucial Senate vote is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, and supporters of the repeal say that as of now, they do not have the 60 votes needed to overcome a GOP filibuster blocking the bill. Maine Republicans Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe are publicly undecided, and could each potentially provide Democrats the votes they need to bring the issue before the Senate.

Lady Gaga's rally is being organized by Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), a gay rights group mobilizing grassroots support to repeal the controversial policy. The organization also helped the singer set up a lengthy YouTube video posted Friday urging her fans to call their senators and ask them to support Tuesday's procedural vote.

The singer sent word of the planned rally via twitter Sunday night.
