DADT Crushes Military Preparedness

Argh! A decorated Army Sergeant has been booted out of the military for liking dudes instead of chicks and talking about it on 60 minutes (h/t Crooks and Liars). In reality, The Don't Ask Don't Tell policy is legislation designed to allow gay people to serve in the military while keeping geezers in the Committee on Armed Services and evangelical community out of our face. Being 27 years-old in the military qualifies me for old-man status, and the youthful military shares the same view on homosexuality that most young people in America do...that is they don't care. DC needs to realize that they are squashing military readiness by kicking out servicemembers for something that has no bearing on their job performance.
