Yesterday, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a hearing to discuss the repeal of the U.S. military's so-called Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.
During the hearing Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss claimed permitting open military service by Americans "who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts" might lead to other nefarious activities, such as "alcohol use, adultery, fraternization, and body art."
Don't be so quick to dismiss Chambliss as a bigoted ignoramus.
I mean, seriously, if gays are allowed to serve openly, the number of tattoo shops operating immediately outside the entrance of Fort Benning in Columbus could grow from five to some huge number like, maybe six. That's a 20 percent increase!
Furthermore, the rate of alcohol abuse in the military, which has nearly doubled since the beginning of the Iraq war, maybe increase even more once the military's newly emboldened homosexuals start demanding mimosas with their breakfasts at military dining facilities.
