Favorite stupid comments – today – about repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell:
Duncan Hunter: “The United States military is not the YMCA. It’s something special,” adding that it is also “not the place to have a liberal crusade to create a liberal utopia and experiment.” Because nothing says liberal utopia like heavily armed gays shooting up Afghan villages nine years into an unending occupation.
Louie Gohmert (R-TX): “I would submit if you will look thoroughly at history — and I’m not saying it’s cause and effect — but when militaries throughout history of the greatest nations in the world have adopted the policy that ‘fine for homosexuality to be overt’ — you can keep it private and control your hormones, fine, if you can’t, that’s fine too — they’re toward the end of their existence as a great nation.”
Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James Amos warned that gay people in the Marines would be “distracting,” what with their washboard abs and dreamy eyes, which would be bad,“And I’ll tell you why. If you go up to Bethesda Hospital . . . Marines are up there with no legs, none. We’ve got Marines at Walter Reed with no limbs.” See what you’ve done, House of Representatives? You’ve literally cut the legs out from under the Marines, with the gay.
