"If Republicans oppose gays in uniform, as they have to do, they not only sound like everybody's mean-spirited and batty grandfather--there is nothing that says old like gay-phobia--but they find themselves peculiarly opposing the war effort.

"This war--these wars!--should be good for something. And here it is: Gay soldiers are good soldiers (as well as dead ones), and, if the Democrats weren't so chicken shit, they could make the Republicans out to be so stubborn, angry, and hopeless that their bigotry outweighs their patriotism."

-- Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff (Hat tip to Projector Joel)
