Hillary Disses Hubby's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Crapromise
All 14th anniversaries deserve extra special festivities, and the Human Rights Campaign is celebrating the big 1-4 of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy for gay soldiers by... asking if candidates will get rid of it! All this week, the organization has been queerying each Democratic candidate, "If you are elected President, what concrete steps would you take to overturn 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell?'" Hillary Rodham Clinton, perhaps swayed by her platonic lover Keith Kerr, responded that she will bring her "strength and experience to bear to end this outdated and outmoded policy." But your husband the President Bill made that policy! Clinton must obey Clinton or all Clintons fail!
She's made the same case before; at a June debate, all teh Demrats said they'd rescind it. But note the careful syntax of those robot wordsmiths over at Clinton HQ: Aside from "outdated" and "outmoded" -- like the policy suddenly started sucking overnight but was perfect when Bill instituted it -- she also notes that her little sea change only came after really thinking about it:
I will stand with soldiers like retired Marine Staff Sgt. Eric Alva, the first American soldier to be seriously wounded in Iraq, and retired Army Sgt. Jose Zuniga, former Army Soldier of the Year, who are shining examples of why this law no longer makes sense. (emphasis ours)
So basically, "When I discovered that the little homos could fight -- which they couldn't do when my husband was president! -- I decided that they should be allowed to be gay and fighting-like after all."
