Texas Gov. to Gay Veterans: Get Lost!
"Asked what he would tell gay war veterans returning from Iraq, 'Texas Gov. Rick Perry suggested that gay veterans unhappy with the proposed anti-gay constitutional amendment should move elsewhere,'" writes Susanhu, quoting from the Washington Blade. "'I'm going to say Texas has made a decision on marriage and if there's a state with more lenient views than Texas, then maybe that's where they should live...' Brilliant. That'll alienate not only gay veterans but gay recruits...stupid considering a few military recruiters are now kidnapping and brainwashing potential recruits and the Army is forced to retain GIs 'it usually kicks out,' Keith Olbermann noted last night."
