Headline Muse, 8/14

It’s a system that worked pretty well
So she’d re-up Don’t Ask and Don’t Tell
Since she can’t stop the gaying
Through therapy-praying
In the alternate world of Michele

Headline: Bachman Would Reinstitute US Gay Troops Ban

Cos the Tea Party wants government to keep its nose out of people’s business.

    Wait a minute — didn’t the far right go pretty well ballistic about DADT replacing the previous “Interrogate and shoot on sight” policy toward gays in the military? Clearly she’s a deep cover liberal.

    Sometimes I wonder how much these politicians actually believe what they’re espousing and how much is purely for show (and how much started out as show and now they believe their own lies…).

    It seems to me that Americans have done to politics what WWE did to wrestling as a sport: turned it into rather shitty soap opera that is only believed by the really ignorant.

    Does Michelle Bachman really think gays in the military are bad or is she just lying for votes? I’d really love to know.

  3. Trebuchet says

    According to the story, she DOESN’T think gays in the military are bad — as long as they stay in the closet. Although I’m pretty sure she’d deny it if asked in that way.

  4. Freerefill says

    Military training is designed to remove any traces of individuality, so that when you’ve got bullets flying over your head, anyone you turn to with an American uniform on is equally trained and trustworthy.

    Homosexual, religious, vegetarian, none of these qualities matter in a soldier, even if many of them are obvious. Troops can usually tell who’s gay, so can their commanding officers. They don’t care, because trust is earned through training. Bills like DADT are being maintained by ignorant, fearful rats who are so in the dark that they can’t realize that there’s nothing wrong with coming out.

  5. RemembersABeach says

    Michele Bachmann’s anti-gay position is not just political expediency. She has a step-sister who is gay, and thought it was appropriate to say

    “Any of you who have members of your family in the lifestyle, we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say that this is gay.”

    She has a long record of being on the wrong side of history and human rights on this.
