Loudoun County Becomes Ground Zero For Gays In The Military Battle
I happen to personally believe that the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell will cause some readiness and morale issues initially. However, the military is adaptable, and they will adapt to this change as well as they have many others in the past. Besides, each successive younger generation is more and more accepting of gays in every walk of life. This is a losing battle for Republicans who wish to ride this issue into oblivion.
But Bob Marshall is taking it off the deep end with his proposal to ban gays from the Virginia National Guard (Brian S. did a great job in his post on this issue). And we can only imagine how Loudoun’s infamous anti-gay warriors Eugene Delgaudio and Dick Black will react.
The LTM has a new story up on this, quoting Tag Greason as opposing Marshall, which will probably send the Black Brigade into a tizzy looking to primary him out of existence. Let’s hope not, since Greason has shown (even though it may not have sunk in fully) Loudoun Republicans what kind of candidate can win easily for Republicans in Loudoun County. Mark Herring has also come out strongly against Marshall on this, which will surely send the Black Brigade robo-posters into another spat of frothing comments at the LTM. I guess we may also get to look forward to some kind of big rally at Patrick Henry College as well.
Enough! This issue is over, and public opinion is firnly behind the end of DADT. Give it up, it’s over, or keep at it full-bore until the voters get sick of it.
