Today, while baking maple pecan banana bread, I was watching Hardball. I don't know what it is about Chris Matthews, but for some reason, his outrage more often than not makes me happy.
Today's episode is around 7 minutes long, and Chris Matthews has his friend on who was a sharp shooter in the army, and he happens to be gay. On our opposing side we have a blow hard from some Christian Group, Family Reserach Council I think, he of course opposes having gay people anywhere on the face of the earth, but most particularly in the military, where gay people will harass straight people, (not the other way around of course).
Mostly I don't know what is wrong with these people, but it is instructive to watch them as they mostly believe in stereotypes of people. Of course Chris nor his buddy brought up the obvious argument, the civil rights argument, because the same arguments the Family Research Council dude gave were exactly the same ones given by those who opposed integrating the military. But even though that particular argument was no used to refute the FRC dude, it was an excellent debate, that Chris and his buddy owned, the other guy looked like the pawn in the Christian Talibans propaganda arm.
