Michele Bachmann Would Reinstate DADT


Michele Bachmann, GOP Presidential hopeful from the Land of 10,000 WTF’s, says she would reinstate the American military’s newly-lifted Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy if elected President.

Thinkprogress.org’s Igor Volsky reports that Bachmann expressed this totally not surprising viewpoint on a conference call with the Faith and Freedom coalition earlier this week, stating,

I think of all of the candidates that are running in this race, I have been very vocal about this. I would reinstate the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. It worked before and what it says is the issue of sexuality is one that doesn’t come up and people aren’t allowed to be open about it because the United States military is unique, its not a social experiment… I take very seriously the job of Commander in Chief. I see that as my very first job and I would listen to the generals [on DADT].

So the job of the boss of the military is to listen to people of whom she’s supposed to be the boss?

Never mind the fact that nothing catastrophic has happened since DADT was overturned except for the horrific tragedy of less-shameful gay sex between physically fit people who sometimes wear military uniforms.

And with that, I’ll be in my bunk.
