When the Senate was debating the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Sen. John McCain promised us that if the military started letting openly gay men and women serve, then there would be a mass exodus from the armed services, because how can anyone expect retention to remain stable when there are KNOWN HOMOSEXUALS WALKING AROUND THE BASE! Except just like predictions of a mass exit with military chaplains, there doesn’t appear to be anyone running for civilian life. “I haven’t had any indication yet at all, not at all,” Marine Commandant Gen. James Amos tells reporters. Huh. Isn’t this the same guy who was certain out homosexuals would lead to his Marines getting their legs blown off? And the same guy who, just weeks ago, was pleading to keep DADT in place.
