Rick Santorum on DADT

Last night was the Republican Party’s eleventeenth Primary Debate, and fortunately for my sanity, I missed it.

I’ll be catching up throughout the day, but this video of Rick “how/why am I still here?” Santorum won the night’s Raging Asshole award for his response to the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal.

Everybody already knew Santorum hates the gays, but his views on DADT are friggen ridiculous. The fact that the crowd boos the gay soldier asking the question, and then applauds Santorum’s slimy response, shows how far Republicans are behind the rest of society.

I’m not quite sure how Santorum even believes the words coming out of his ass mouth.

First he discusses that this is dangerous to push social policy through the military. He talks about it being a “social experiment” that will be a danger to the military. What is different about the military now than one month or one year ago? NOTHING!

So the fact that soldiers can admit their attracted to men will kill military policy, completely change battle plans, and they’ll need to refit tanks to accommodate gayness? NO! Nothing is changing, there aren’t any experiments, its just people can talk now. Ridiculous.

He refers to the “special treatment” that gays will now get in the military, but WTF special treatment is he talking about? Are they getting bonuses? Are they getting new gay bang-fest quarters decorated by Laura Ashley? Do they get new snazzy uniforms?

Watch the video below, and be sickened by this poor excuse for a public representative…
