From Alex Pareene at Salon:
Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl explained on Fox yesterday that allowing gay men and women to serve openly in the armed forces ” is not a constitutional right as was the issue of racial segregation,” and he went on to argue that repealing the policy that bars them “could disrupt unit cohesion… and cost lives.”
That’s right: Repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” could kill soldiers.
Considering that this may very well kill people, the next Congress should probably repeal the repeal, right? I mean, it’s literally a matter of life and death. We need to re-ban gay people ASAP, right, Senator Kyl?
“I don’t have any plan in place” to repeal the repeal in the next Congress, Kyl said on Fox today.
