Everyone knows that even a broken clock is right twice a day. Well it looks as though Fox (Faux) News had a broken clock moment with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday last week. I wonder if this is a sign of the apocalypse? Wallace took Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum to task on issues of homophobia and hypocrisy, two areas in which Santorum qualifies as an expert.
During the last presidential debate, Santorum tried to argue that the repeal of DADT would have harmful effects on our military:
…ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was the government trying to inject social policy into the military
…the end goal of doing away with the policy was that gay soldiers would be on an equal footing with their heterosexual peers.
Wallace scored huge points as a journalist when he used a WWII quote that was used to try and prevent racial integration:
The army is not a sociological laboratory. Experimenting with policy, especially in a time of war, would pose a danger to efficiency, discipline and morale and would result in ultimate defeat.
Of course, Santorum replied, ” that unlike race, sexuality is a choice.” I wonder when Santorum chose to be heterosexual. Honestly, as obsessed as this man is with homosexuality, I’m not sure he or Marcus Bachmann are fooling a lot of people, just as our J. Edgar Hoover and his pink flower bathing cap did not really fool those in Washington, even though he managed to persecute a generation of people within the LGBT community.
