Batshit crazy looks exactly like Elaine Donnelly, in case you were still stunned from reading that there really are aliens.
Holding the first hearing in 15 years on the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, lawmakers invited a quartet of veterans to testify on the subject and also extended an invitation to Donnelly, who has been working for years to protect our fighting forces from the malign influence of women.
Donnelly treated the panel to an extraordinary exhibition of rage. She warned of "transgenders in the military." She warned that lesbians would take pictures of people in the shower. She spoke ominously of gays spreading "HIV positivity" through the ranks.
"We're talking about real consequences for real people," Donnelly proclaimed. Her written statement added warnings about "inappropriate passive/aggressive actions common in the homosexual community," the prospects of "forcible sodomy" and "exotic forms of sexual expression," and the case of "a group of black lesbians who decided to gang-assault" a fellow soldier.
The reaction was mixed. Some merely rolled their eyes, while others acted as if they were going to lose their lunch. Outrage was had by all.
The fact of the matter is, we already have gays in the military. Let's grow the fuck up and allow people some fucking dignity and recognize that their partners have rights, that they are no different from the rest of us, and let's stop stigmatizing their lifestyle and marginalizing their contributions to our country by allowing people like Donnelly to appear in public to spew bullshit. It's a good thing she spoke--now we have a picture to go along with what we define as "batshit crazy." The pictures of Michelle Bachmann, Joe Lieberman and Victor Davis Hanson were getting old.
