Republican Presidential wingnut Michele Bachmann says she would reinstate the American military’s newly lifted Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy if elected President.
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].
It worked before – except for that whole firing-totally-qualified-people-for-reasons-completely-unrelated-to-their-jobs thing.
