If gays are allowed to serve openly in the military, frets Saxby Chambliss, “alcohol use, adultery, fraternization and body art” will become big problems.
“If we change this rule of ‘Don’t Ask, Dont Tell,” he asked, “what are we going to do with these other rules?”
Obviously Chambliss, who received deferments to avoid Vietnam, knows as much about the military as he does gay people. Based on his advice I’m going to open an all-night body ink parlor in Midtown specializing in tattoos of liquor bottles and penises (natch).
Meanwhile, John McCain totally contradicted himself at yesterday’s DADT hearing.
A few years back, the Arizona Republican and 2008 GOP presidential nominee said he would wait until military leaders called for ending the policy that requires gays in the U.S. military to stay in the closet before he would do so.
Now that military leaders have said DADT should be ended, McCain is criticizing them.
