Haley Barbour's version of kiss-kiss warfare
REPUBLICAN HALEY BARBOUR, THE billowy-faced Mississippi governor who is on course to seek the presidency, says he would reinstate Don't Ask Don't Tell in the military because you don't need any "amorous mindset" among the troops when you're in the heat of battle." Granted, this profound insight into the battleground comes from a good ol' boy who never served in the military. But I must humbly ask whether the guv actually believes - actually believes - that gays will be in a lovers' embrace when the enemy is shooting at them. Alas, the strange level of political discourse by the presidential wannabes has become the only seal of approval avidly sought by the Republican candidate class.
