It's a Yahoo headline so it must be true...Sen. Brownback Supports Pace's Remark On Gays. My question is why anyone -- even Yahoo -- would think this was worth the bandwidth to report. Now, if Brownback said he was taking a clue from the last true conservative, Sen. Barry Goldwater, who thought the important thing was the soldier's competence in soldiery ... After all, that's what the majority of today's troops think is what matters, undercutting the old unit cohesion argument that Dan Coats used instead of a white sheet back in the 1993 Gays In the Military Wars.
Given the number of criminals they're letting into the services these days just to fill recruiting quotas, I'm betting the average troop is a lot more concerned about sharing a foxhole with someone still suffering from a prison sex jones than being in close proximity to your average straight shooting queer.
Is there a better gay issue for sorting the hopelessly attritionable from the reasonable than this?
