"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Smackdown
In front of the House Armed Service Committee yesterday, anti-military extremist Elaine Donnelly provided America with a disturbing view some people hold that a person's sexual orientation somehow trumps their performance on the battlefield. Some other, similarly out-of-touch diehards were there as well, but she was really the star. (If you've ever been desperately in need of an Arabic translator, these are the people you can thank for getting at least 58 gay Arabic linguists kicked out of the military since 9/11.)
OYE Comment: Please see the video of Iraq Veteran/Congressman Patrick Murphy deliver the intellectual beatdown of the day to the proud bigot, Ms. Donnelly.
