I know this has nothing to do with wrestling, but if anyone happened to catch the CNN Youtube Debate last night, former Military General Kerr, who served in the military for 43 years, asked the candidates if they believe whether or not the personnel in our military are professional enough to work along with openly gay men and women. Oh course they all stood by their "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, but at the same time admitted that openly gay men and women serve in other countries sucessfully. Apparently they don't think American troops are professional enough (or too homophobic).
But what really got me irrate is that they now say that this gentleman is a Clinton supporter and "should not have been allowed to ask his question." What the fuck? Shouldn't any voter be able to ask ANY candidate any question regardless of who they sway too? Even the closeted anchor, Anderson Cooper, made the statement after "had we known, we probably would not have allowed the question." Here is the email I sent to CNN as a followup to their debate:
"Why are you making a fuss about General Kerr being in favor of Clinton, but asking his question on "Don't ask, don't tell" in the Republican debate? Shouldn't anyone in the U.S. be able to ask ANY presidential candidate a question, regardless of what party they sway toward? After all, they will be OUR president. Even though I detest the homophobia exuded by those Republican candidates, I did watch it as a citizen whose vote counts. And so should anyone's question.
