I don’t know about you, but I think we need Rush Limbaugh’s Gay Update Theme.
Go ahead and let it play in the back ground. It’ll provide just the right mood music.
Say, did you hear that Obama appointed the first openly gay man to serve as Secretary of the Army?
Yeah. Some fella named Eric Fanning. A guy who has never served one day in the United States Army.
Hey, at least Secretary of the Navy Mabus served in the Navy for two years 45 years ago.
But this guy:
Whoops. I think that’s the wrong picture.
Okay, here’s the right one.
He’s never served in the Army. He worked as a staffer in the House Armed Services Committee, and also worked in the Defense Department. Obama made him Deputy Under Secretary and Deputy Chief Management Officer for the Department of the Navy in July 2009. Then, in 2012, Obama nominated him to be Under Secretary of the Air Force.
Just this summer, Obama appointed him Acting Under Secretary of the Army.
And now, he’s been nominated to be Secretary of the Army.
Now before you accuse me of being homophobic, be honest. If Obama wanted to appoint a gay person to a post like Secretary of the Army, don’t you think he could have found someone who actually served in the military? No. This wasn’t about appointing the right man for the job. This is all about appointing a gay man because, well, he’s gay.
You know it. I know it. Obama knows it.
Fanning is a huge advocate for gays and transgenders serving in the military.
So I think we can all agree combat-readiness doesn’t appear to be any higher on his list of priorities than it is on Obama’s.
I gotta tell you. Iran must be laughing their collective asses off.
So, forget Be all the You Can Be.
Come next year, the Army will revamp their recruiting campaign (and I’m sure if there’s anything Mr. Fanning is good at, it’s recruiting) to Be as FABULOUS as You Can Be.
