"Following this weekend's vote by the Senate to allow gays to openly serve in the military, Del. Bob Marshall (R-Prince WIlliam) said he is drafting a bill for the 2011 legislative session that would ban them from serving in the Virginia National Guard.
"'This policy will weaken military recruitment and retention, and will increase pressure for a military draft,' Marshall said. 'After 232 years of prohibiting active, open homosexuals from enlisting in our military, President Obama and a majority in Congress are conducting a social experiment with our troops and our national security...In countries where religions and cultures find homosexual acts immoral, the Obama administration's repeal policy will work to the detriment of all American troops in securing local cooperation with our nation's foreign policy goals.'"
Del. Marshall isn't that funny at his weekend job, either.
Del. Marshall, in the immortal words of Antoine Dodson, you are so dumb. You are really dumb. For real.
I mean, at this point, it's been repealed on the federal level, the majority of Americans think discriminating in the armed services on the basis of sexual orientation is wrong, and, uh, this bill won't do anything. The general and legislative counsel for Equality Virginia has confirmed: the National Guard is subject to the same rules as federal military units.
My only conclusion is this guy has to be kidding. Therefore, he is my Comedian of the Week. HAHAHAHA! Funny one, Del. Marshall!!!!
