“Addressing how the military leadership, led by Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen, could now favor a repeal of the law, Santorum raised the specter of brainwashing. ‘Political correctness is reigning in the military right now,’ he said. ‘People say [on DADT] listen to the military brass. I’m not too sure that we haven’t so indoctrinated the officer corps in this country that they can actually see straight to make the right decision.’ The line went over well with the CPAC crowd.”
Uh huh. The top military brass is has been brainwashed into gayness. Rick Santorum somehow thinks he has a better understanding of the military than…the military?
This is just one more example of the double standard in American politics. Can you imagine what kind of outcry would currently be happening in Wingnuttia if, say, Nancy Pelosi asserted that she knew what was best for the military better than the military?
Oh, oh, oh, but don’t call Santorum a homophobe, says the Stockholm Syndrome Syndicate!
So I guess we’ll file this one under “Yep, still a creep.”
