Matt Barber at Wash. Times: Repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell means "we dress up our military like Poochie poodle in a pink sweater"

From a September 24 Washington Times column by Liberty Counsel director of cultural affairs Matt Barber, headlined " 'Gays,' guns and mad social science":
While preaching to the choir at his April 12 Nuclear Security Summit, President Obama revealed his perspective on America's matchless military might: "Whether we like it or not," he said, "we (the United States) remain a dominant military superpower." That the president would even imagine "we" might not "like it," betrays his fixed membership within that "progressive" camp of self-loathing "or nots." (Mr. Obama's anti-Americanism is showing.)
Indeed, if there were ever a question whether Democrats are woefully weak on national defense, that question was cleared up on Tuesday. Taking direction from Lady Gaga (evidently Mr. Obama's new national defense czar) Senate Majority Leader and chief surrender monkey Harry "the war is lost" Reid cynically attempted, but fortunately failed, to ram through a repeal of Section 654,Title 10, USC - the law prohibiting homosexual conduct within the ranks of the armed services. Just two Democrats - Sens. Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas - voted against repeal.
Madame Gen. Gaga summed up the trio's battle plan rather succinctly at a recent homosexualist rally for repeal: "Our new law is called 'If you don't like it, go home!'" she observed. Those 12 words are perhaps the most perceptive ever to grace the dirty diva's foul-mouthed lips.
In fact, according to a 2008 Military Times poll, Gaga's got it right. When asked the question "If the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy is overturned and gays are allowed to serve openly, how would you respond?" almost 10 percent of active-duty personnel replied: "I would not re-enlist or extend my service." Another 14 percent warned: "I would consider not re-enlisting or extending my service."
Of course, the potential exodus of up to 24 percent of current military personnel from our all-volunteer services would be devastating to national security. But when those holding the reins of government function from an egalitarian, globalist, Euro-socialist worldview, we shouldn't be surprised that national security takes a backseat to political correctness.
While in the interest of promoting sanctimonious notions of "tolerance" and "diversity," we dress up our military like Poochie poodle in a pink sweater, Iranian, North Korean and Chinese pit bulls bark at the gate.
While we work to "gay"-down our historically unparalleled fighting force to mirror those of Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland, our nation's single-minded enemies ramp up intense combat training and military spending.
