There's No Sex in the Champagne Room - Chris RockHalf of the military's ad campaign is set up to convince the young recruit that he's going to be a bad ass ninja kicking down doors and taking out Osama Bin Laden, except when George W. Bush is stopping US from killing Bin Laden. The other half implicitly states Mila Kunis will attend the Marine Corps Ball with you.
The Totalitarian Right which has been fighting the War on Sex for decades has decided to drop all pretenses they cared about protecting Americans, jobs, the economy or rising debt and refocus on the only thing they do care about, making sure they control when, where and with whom you have sex and punishing dirty, dirty women who have sex outside Right-Wing Authoritarian control.
Of course, Totalitarian Republicans, know as much about real war as they do about fornicating and leading the charge on the Right-Wing War on Sex is Sick Rantorum.
His most recent interview shows the only peek into military life he's done is watching Ronnie Raygun movies:
“I meant exactly what I said,” the former Pennsylvania Dictator said. “When you have men and women together in combat, I think there’s — men have the emotions when you see a woman in harm’s way. I think it’s something that’s natural, that’s very much in our culture to be protective.”Now compare Sick Rantorum's "concerns" with a scene from G.I. Jane,
“Some people might listen to that quote and think you meant you were concerned about women being emotional,” NBC's Ann Curry noted.
“Oh, no,” Sick Rantorum replied. “No, the issue is — and certainly one that has been talked about for a long, long time — is how men would react to seeing women in harm’s way, potentially being injured or in a vulnerable position, and not being concerned about accomplishing the mission.”
"You know, the Israelis ... they tried women in the 1967 War. Female soldiers. It seems the men couldn't get used to the sight of women blown open and their viscera hanging from tree limbs. Israeli men would linger over wounded females -- often to the detriment of the mission, often endangering their own lives."Of course, when President Santorum takes over as C-in-C every future military recruit should be aware of his positions, "I would say, any type of sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military."
So yea, no more dates with Mila Kunis or Justin Timberlake for you Jarhead. Ooh-Rah...
