"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.

Why is Donnelly always wearing pearls? Are those things surgically attached Marge Simpson style.

He nailed her a$$ to the wall on that issue! I just love people who have never served telling us about unit cohesiveness.

On Elaine Donnelly's bio at the Center for Military Readiness it says "She has also experienced... Air Force survival training at a prisoner of war camp" Do you think she was water-boarded by teh Gays and it explains why she doesn't want to tolerate homosexuals?

So Donnelly thinks that her "dog and pony" shows that she took qualifies her as an expert in the military.

I went and saw a bunch of baseball games last year, so i guess i'm a baseball player.
