Marine Commandant did his own ‘poll’ on DADT… he asked people

Get this.  Your boss, who is really really powerful, says he hates something.  He then asks you for a show of hands, how many of you agree with him.  Miraculously, most of you raise your hands and agree with Big Marine Brother.

That, according to the homophobic and insubordinate outgoing commandant of the Marine Corps, General James Conway, proves that repealing DADT is a bad idea.  Because he informally asked a bunch of his subordinates how they felt, and what a surprise, they agreed with their outspoken boss.

Then again, this is a guy who suggested segregating, separate but equal style, gay troops.
