"So it was okay to waterboard a guy 80 times but God forbid the guy who could understand what that prick was saying has a boyfriend? Waterboarding may make a prisoner talk, but it ain't gonna make him talk English."

--Jon Stewart on 1 Lt. Dan Choi, an infantry officer and Arabic linguist who was dismissed from the National Guard under Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
