The Daily Show Does Elaine Donnelly

I previously posted about Elaine Donnelly's deranged and vociferous rant last week while testifying in opposition to the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." To anyone who has followed the fanatically sexually repressed/obsessed Donnelly's anti-gay statements over the years, it became readily apparent ages ago that she's not dealing with a full deck. In fact, one cannot help but wonder who in the GOP arranged for her to be a witness. Don't get me wrong, I am extremely happy that she testified. She probably provided the best demonstration as to why DADT needs to go and put an image of indelible lunacy on the face of its supporters. Thus, it is not surprising that the Daily Show did a piece on Ms. Donnelly's performance at the hearings. Needless to say, a number of far right wingnuts are whining about the debacle Elaine Donnelly created, but the bottom line is that if the truth hurts and the anti-gay spokesmen show themselves to be crazy, just maybe the policy DOES need to end.
