    Bigot asshat Rick "Man-on-dog" Santorum fielded the question, and instead of opening with "I thank you for your service" as usual, he said that no sexual activity should be allowed in the military and that gays have been give a "special privilege." Yikes! Well, he'd like to rephrase that, now.

    So, all you gay jihadists can just lay off now, thank you very much!!

    What an idiot. Sexual activity isn't allowed in the military anyway.

    He must be delusional, as doing damage control indicates he really believes he has a chance of getting the nomination.

    Maybe I can buy Santorum's excuse that he was so focused on answering the question that the boos didn't really register. But I have a much harder time believing that he "certainly would have commented on them" if he had heard them. What do we think this is? He's the closest thing this field has to a George W. Bush Republican, and his minuscule chances of winning the nomination rest on uniting the frightened anti-gay social conservatives and foreign policy neoconservatives who've begun, in comically desperate fashion, to give Santorum a second look. Hating on gay soldiers for undermining the military is his best last option! And he executed, in perfectly shameless fashion.

    Bullshit.

    I'd love to find a way to contact Stephen Hill and personally send him a message thanking him and asking him about what he thinks of the response to his question.

    If Frothy Mix and his minions (NOM, FOTF, etc) had their way, all LGBTs, including the gay soldier that former "Senator" Man-on Dog lectured, would be herded into boxcars and sent to camps for extermination.

    Our very existence is an insult to them, their "faith' and their "god."

    Frothy Mix is not really running for President, he's running for his own show on Fox and higher speaking fees at right-wing Hate Fests.

    Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman told ABC News that it was “totally unfortunate and unnecessary when someone in uniform asks a question of a panelist in this case, the first response should be thanking the soldier for his or her service.”

    “We all wear the same uniform in America. We all salute the same flag I have two boys starting their journey in the U.S military. We should take more time to thank them for their services as opposed to finding differences based on background or orientation,” said Huntsman.

    Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson said he was embarrassed.

    “That’s not the Republican Party that I belong to,” said Johnson. “I’m embarrassed by someone who serves in the military and can’t express their sexuality. I am representing the Republican Party that is tolerant. And to me that shows an intolerance that I’m not a part of in any way whatsoever. ”

    Johnson added that he could hear the boos from the stage and believes that the other candidates – despite Santorum’s denial – could as well.

    I don't suppose it would be too much trouble to refer to the former Senator by his given name (Rick Santorum)...?

    Using charming and descriptive epithets like "Frothy Mix..." add little if any civility to any discourse in these threads.

    Yes, it IS too much trouble.

    These people, these self-professed "Christians" (with Gary Johnson and perhaps John Huntsman being exceptions to the norm) want all of us - you, me, Stephen Hill (the soldier who asked the question) converted, cured and failing those two options, dead.

    They deny us rights, call us child molesters, say we are worse than terrorists and seek to relegate us to second class citizenship.

    If you seek to accuse anyone of not being civil, blame lies not with us.

    I know I'm a black sheep on this one, but I actually hate the patronizing statements of 'I thank you for your service" from politicians.

    You thank me b/c you've never had to deal with it and never want to have to deal with it. The thought of putting your life or your family's life at risk scares you. You don't have the balls to sacrifice to that level.(speaking in generalizations - there are some I actually admire...McCain's service is an example). I've had this conversation with many of the guys I work with and I think its abhorrent that such a small section of the representatives (president included) are really affected by anything the military does. Lip service and jobs for their constituents. That's what the military is for to a vast majority.

    Well..yes and no, from what I can find out searching google. This is interesting:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18298695


    " Using a cross-sectional design, 212 female soldiers who delivered viable infants at Darnall Army Community Hospital, Fort Hood, Texas from 1 June 1998 to 6 October 1998 completed a self-administered survey on pregnancy intention and sociodemographic factors. Approximately 35% of the infants were intended, 51% were unintended and 14% were ambivalent, resulting in 65% not intended, a rate consistent with the upper level of civilian communities. Factors associated univariably with unintended pregnancy included being unmarried, being in the lower enlisted rank, having less than a college degree, and living in the barracks. This study shows the importance of developing programmes and policies that address pregnancy among military personnel."

    It's not the "thank you" for your service that was needed

    ....... It's the OPENING YOUR RIGHTWING MOUTHS at the time when someone is booed for who they are

    I disliked John McCain and his policies but I have to give him credit when he confronted that woman during his campaign who called Obama a Muslim who wasn't patriotic

    All of these nine candidates should be ashamed of themselves that they needed to be called to the carpet AFTER the fact

    Do you think for ONE SECOND that they would have said a PEEP if there wasn't an uproar over those boos????

    He'll no this is the republican party my friends and welcome to it
    Now go head and vote for one of these POS's

    ORLY?

    The funny thing is, the fringe dingbats think that another round of Obama will result in all Christians getting lined up against the wall to be shot.

    Both bits of eliminationist thinking have no place in any discussion about advancing the rights of LGBTs and *gasp* conservative Christians to coexist, and coexist peacefully ad can be managed.

    jprichva saidOkay, flame away, but I really dislike this obligatory "Thank you for your service" shit.

    It's a job. A freely-chosen job, one that benefits the country, but so do many others.
    Ever say to a teacher, "Thank you for trying to educate these illiterate, unruly brats"?

    Ever say "Thanks for hauling away my coffee grounds, banana peels, and used kitty litter" to your garbageman?

    Ever say, "Thanks for looking the other way while I jaywalk, and by the way, nice nightstick there pal" to your friendly local cop?

    People do all sorts of public service jobs, but we don't get all smarmy and obsequious when they do. Except for people in the armed forces, because we still suffer for how badly we treated returning soldiers from Vietnam.

    Well, that was FORTY YEARS AGO. Enough.

    It is this kind of nauseating sanctimony that fosters the militaristic, police-state mentality that we're all busy allowing to become the "new normal."


    No flaming...TOTAL AGREEMENT!...well, except for the last sentence...but everything else I'm right there with you on.

    I don't do it for the gratification of anyone's thanks. I do it b/c I want to.

    Rick Santorum is an idiot. No wonder the people of Pennsylvania voted his incompetent, retarded, right wing ass out of office. This man needs to be kept out of American politics for the rest of his life. icon_mad.gif
