Quote of the Day:

“As one special operations warfighter said during the Pentagon’s review—this was one of my favorites… “We have a gay guy in the unit.  He’s big, he’s mean, he kills lots of bad guys.” 

—President Obama, speaking at the signing ceremony for the law repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Obama cited gay military heroism from the past, though he didn’t mention if there were any gays or lesbian American soldiers at My Lai or the fire-bombing of Dresden. However, if the United States decides to bomb the living daylights out of Iran, it’s entirely possible that gay and lesbian American air force pilots can openly take part in it.
