Quote of the Day

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on the repeal of DADT:

To my friend who said that history would judge us poorly, I would submit if you would look thoroughly at history — and I’m not saying it’s cause and effect — but when militaries throughout history of the greatest nations in the world have adopted the policy that “fine for homosexuality to be overt” — you can keep it private and control your hormones fine, if you can’t, that’s fine too — they’re toward the end of their existence as a great nation.

Somehow I don’t think nations like Canada, Great Britain, and Israel, just to name a few, are at the end of their existence because they don’t treat gay and lesbian soldiers like pariahs.
