Gay soldier booed at GOP debate; candidates stay mum
Some members of the GOP debate audience booed a gay soldier who asked via video whether the Republican candidates would reinstitute the recently repealed "Don't ask, don't tell" policy of banning openly gay soldiers.
After Stephen Hill, who is serving in the Army in Iraq, asked his question, a handful of members of the audience booed loudly. None of the Republican candidates responded to the audience's reaction.
I won't even broach the dishonest idiocy of Santorum's response, because he's at least entitled to his opinion.
I'm amazed at how diligent the GOP is in pushing me farther and farther away from ever casting a vote for national level candidates.
