Equal Opportunist of the Day

The pictures do the talking, and however many pictures there may be in video stores or warehouses or online, they still don't have anything interesting to say. I am concerned, though, that they may make some people feel inadequate. As a conservative, I like to insist on equal opportunity, even if some do start off with more than others. —Matt Sanchez, Marine reservist, darling of the right and former porn star well endowed by his Creator, writing in Salon

Oh those compassionate conservatives! Even if Mr. Sanchez started life with more than others, he certainly wasn't giving it away. A date with Mr. Sanchez ran $200 a pop. (Uncut photos here.)

Yet for gays already in the military, or aspiring to be, Sanchez may have greased the chute, forcing the Pentagon to stretch its tight-assed "don't-ask, don't tell" policy a little wider. A couple of weeks ago John Hoellwarth reported in the Marine Corps Times that—

Officials at Marine Corps Recruiting Command were unable to say whether past participation in gay porn disqualifies a potential enlistee because it was unclear how the current “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy might apply.

Principle of the Day: Rule of Law

The rule of law is founded on clear, understandable legislation that is applied equally to all, respect for and adherence to such laws by the public and governmental officials, governmental authority to enforce adherence to the law and to bring violators to justice, and the means to hold government officials accountable for the misuse of power. —"Measuring Stability and Security in Iraq," March 2007 Report to Congress In accordance with the Department of Defense Appropriations Act 2007 (Section 9010, Public Law 109-289) [PDF]

Very well put. After they've finished with the Iraq project, maybe the military can help with the situation in the U.S. Who'd have guessed that was one of their specialties?
