Someone from the military who just came out of the closet due to the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell asked if Santorum would reinstate DADT if elected President. (By the way, the audience booed when the guy said he was gay). Of course, Santorum said yes. Here were his reasons:
1. Repealing DADT gives gays "special status". What??
2. He said repealing DADT is bad because we shouldn't be allowing sexual activity within the military. How is that related?
3. He said "sex should not be an issue"... as a reason we should reinstate the policy that openly gay people can't serve in the military.
The other really
Another face-palm moment of the night was Herman Cain saying he wouldn't have beaten cancer if Obamacare had been in place because "government bureaucrats" would take too long to approve his treatments. Um, what government bureaucrats? Why are people still pretending Obamacare is a single-payer system? Cain would have had private insurance either way. It sounds like the system he doesn't like is Medicare, but none of them will ever suggest we should do away with that.
