Back in the closet

From tonight’s Republican presidential debate:

Soldier: In 2010 when I was deployed to Iraq I had to lie about who I was, because I’m a gay soldier. I didn’t want to lose my job. My question is, under one of your president sees do you intend to circumvent the progress made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?

[ Booing ]

Santorum: What we are doing is playing social experimentation with our military right now. That’s tragic. I would just say that going forward we would reinstitute that policy if rick santorum was president. That policy would be reinstituted as far as people in I would not throw them out that would be unfair to them because of the policy of this administration. But we would move forward in conformity with what was happening in the past. Which was sex is not an issue. It should not be an issue. Leave it alone. Keep it to yourself whether you are heterosexual or homosexual.

Also, this.

    They’ve done this kind of stuff before (criticize soldiers, country-music stars, Bush appointees, etc) who break from the Partei-Approved Ideology.

    The unrepentitant ones are turned into un-Persons and “disappeared” by Fox News. For the ones that repent, there’s a show trial on Hannity or O’Reilly, with a tearful confession and grudging acceptance.

    The forced internment in a GOP re-education camp is being reserved for “W2: The Perry ReDumbening” (with ‘dumb’ being used in both senses of the word)

  2. …speaking of which, is it just me, or does Perry remind anyone of W. when he has absolutely no idea what the fuck is going on? I mean notice the silly yuck-yuck facial expression, and hunching his shoulders as if he’s saying “Why the hell should I be bothered with this shit, you know I don’t know shit, so don’t ask!”

  3. Periodically everyone should do a Google search on santorum and then go to SpreadingSantorum and keep it the #1 site for the term santorum. It drives him crazy.

  4. Santorum:

    I would say any type of sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military.

    Eunuchs only!

    Which would also mean no women in the military…?

  5. Woodsider:
    I had never heard of Santorum before, so I googled him and was shocked to learn that he’s heavily involved in a particularly disgusting form of gay sex.
    Yuck!

  6. The frothy mixture declared: “Yeah. I, I would say any type of sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military. And the fact that they are making a point to include it as a provision within the military that we are going to recognize a group of people and give them a special privilege to, ah, to, to, and removing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, I think tries to inject social policy into the military.”

    That second sentence is totally incomprehensible. Has he hired Sarah Palin to give him debating tips?
