No Wonder Ann Coulter Can Use the Other F-Word
The question, “Do you think homosexuality is immoral?” is a yes-or-no question. (My answer for the record is no.)
But both Hillary and Barack were unable to offer a straight answer to this query when asked to comment on General Pace’s remarks earlier this week. Though Senator Clinton later released a statement disagreeing with the General’s remarks, she initially dodged it, “Well I’m going to leave that to others to conclude.”
Before issuing a statement clarifying his view, Senator Obama was similarly inarticulate on the subject, and sidestepped it:
“I think traditionally the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman has restricted his public comments to military matters,” said Obama, leaving Capitol Hill. “That’s probably a good tradition to follow.”
He turned the conversation to opposition to the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy: “I think the question here is whether somebody is willing to sacrifice for their country.”
If neither of these Democratic darlings can be forthright with defending the identities of an entire class of its citizens because they are too concerned with the political implications of taking a stand, can I feel comfortable supporting their candidacies? I’m going to have to leave that for others to conclude.
