Stephen Colbert: Gay Soldiers Are Already Experts At Secret Identities And Espionage

Gen. Colin Powell promised President Bill Clinton that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would still let gay soldiers go to gay bars and gay pride parades (but not in uniform!). Sen. John McCain still believes that’s how the military operates! And while the Arizona senator doesn’t seem to recognize this is a farce, and the Pentagon loves its witch hunts, last night Stephen Colbert offered some sound advice for dealing with gay soldiers moving forward: turn them into spies, because they’re already leading doubles lives!

Also: Colbert is very sorry for using the slur “cornpacker” while testifying before Congress.
