Silly Season at the Pentagon

What happens when Obama touches something? To borrow from William F. Buckley who said of Eisenhower, "every ray of light, every breath of air is choked out." From The Washington Times:
WASHINGTON — Last summer, gays in the military dared not admit their sexual orientation. This summer, the Pentagon will salute them, marking gay pride month just as it marks other celebrations honoring racial or ethnic groups.

Officials said Thursday that they’re planning the first-ever event to recognize gay and lesbian troops.

Totally absurd. I really do feel for the majority of our troops who utterly loathe this kind of nonsense. (Believe me, I've spoken to many of them.) On the one hand, the pro-homosexuals-in-the-military ilk talk about longing to merely serve openly, to be treated no differently than anyone else, but then the Pentagon feels compelled to host special recognition services to single them out? Okay... Why can't we just salute all of the troops collectively, without breaking them into special groups? Because identity politics and setting one set of people against another is what liberals love love love to do.
