Beyond the Pale
The head of the Marine Corps, General James Amos, had the nerve to claim today that US troops will be killed and maimed if Don't Ask, Don't Tell is repealed:
"I don't want to lose any Marines to distraction. I don't want to have any Marines that I'm visiting at Bethesda (hospital) with no legs," he said.
Are you kidding me? Are we now going to accept that officials can say with immunity that gay soldiers will cause the death and mutilation of others? This seems to me beyond the pale. Shame on you, General Amos.
Please, President Obama. Do something.
