Ridiculous Comparison from a Congress Candidate

Why don't they just be honest and say "I don't like gays" instead of offering dumbass analogies?
[Republican Congressional nominee (MA-4) Sean] Bielat also did something else. He made a bizarre comparison when discussing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to the Boston Herald, arguing that gays should have no guaranteed right to serve in the military -- just like short people.

"There's no absolute right to serve. Men under the height of 5 feet, 2 inches can't serve -- I don't see anybody protesting. Where are the people standing in front of the White House, the short guys standing in front of the White House? You don't see it," Bielat told the Boston Herald. "We understand that there's no absolute right to serve in all these other areas," he continued.
It's kinda like saying if you have ears that look like satellite dishes you cannot serve in Congress.

Update: Beilat lost to Democratic incumbent Barney Frank.

That's kind of strange because my uncle, all of 5'2", served in WWII and was in India with the Flying Tigers.
