The “gay stuff” from the GOP debate

Watch the Republican presidential candidates mis-state what the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy even is. Contrary to what the GOP candidates believe, it’s not okay for gay people to serve so long as they don’t have sex – that isn’t the policy. Then see John McCain and Rudy Giuliani not only defend the ban, but explain how there’s no need to change the policy on banning gay Arabic-speaking-linguists right now, I mean, we’re in the middle of a war and having more Arabic speakers can’t possibly help us find and stop Arab terrorists.
