Because Eight Hard-Ons a Day Isn’t a Problem for Men

Our guest columnist is a frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter who never served in the military.

I want to create every opportunity for women to be able to serve this country… but I do have concerns about women in front-line combat.

I think that could be a very compromising situation, where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interest of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. It already happens, of course, with the camaraderie of men in combat, but I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat. And I think that’s not in the best interests of men, women or the mission.

Santorum says ‘other types of emotions’ could preclude women in combat [WaPo]

Ol’ Brown ‘n’ Foamy doesn’t realize that women (like gays) who serve in the military have to endure, and pass, the same training as their straight male counterparts. So if the hypothetical Frothy were a soldier who decided to insult a fellow female soldier, he should be aware that said female soldier may draw-and-quarter him with one hand.

OTOH, he could always blame it on her emotional state.

That is SUCH crap. Do male firefighters give that type of deference to women firefights(oops!)ers? Male cops? I think we need to do a study, because my female cop cousin is the one dudes want to have their backs.

What unlubricated bullshit dripping from an asshole’s mouth.

What the hell does Santorum know about combat?

Wonder how Santorum will deal with this?

Navy names USS Gabrielle Giffords
By Daniel Strauss and Jeremy Herb – 02/10/12 02:41 PM ET

The secretary of the Navy announced on Friday that a new littoral combat ship will be named after former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

“The name this ship bears and the story represented by that name will inspire all those who come in contact with her,” said Navy Secretary Ray Mabus at a naming ceremony at the Pentagon Friday. The ship named after Giffords is a littoral combat ship, a smaller ship designed for operations close to the shore. The USS Gabrielle Giffords is the Navy’s 10th LCS.

Giffords appeared at the ceremony with her husband, Mark Kelly, as well as former Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) and Roxanna Green, the mother of Christina Taylor-Green, the 9-year-old girl who was killed in the shooting in Tucson, Ariz., last year.

Only 8? It’s all about the recovery time, people.

@redmanlaw: Is she a hawk? I’d be pissed if I got shot up and others were killed and they named a (mini) Destroyer after me.

@Benedick: Eat yer spinach. Honestly, I haven’t seen a man past 40 capable of eight in 24 hours. Just sayin’.

@JNOV is like, Peace?: It’s my understanding that she was a bit of a Blue Dog and a gun owner, plus that, she’s married to a military guy.

@redmanlaw: I thought he was an astronaut. The AF doesn’t count. ;-P

@Benedick: That’s what I’ve heard.

@JNOV is like, Peace?: It would be interesting to see your research on that. Not that I’m an unbeliever, I’m just…a collector of images.

@redmanlaw: Besides, these things are usually Gator Freighters. The Navy pulls up close and launches Marines to dieeee. Not being a gun owner myself, I think there are those who are yet don’t dig war.

@matador1015: Oh! Um, I don’t think I understand the research thing or the collector thing. We could mock up some…

After 18, it’s all downhill. Literally.

I was so stoked to pick up The Jobs Book to End All Books from the library today. Now I’m kinda disappointed. And I’ve only read the intro and maybe half of the first chapter. I fell asleep on it! Sheesh. Stephen King is more riveting.

Oh, and The Game.

I saw Dawn Halfaker in an interview last night. Her right arm was completely blown off by a IED while in combat. What a remarkable woman.
Not one bit of self-pity in that woman.
santorum completely dishonors her service and her sacrifice with his witless remarks.
The only pussy unneeded,unwanted,incapable in combat is rick santorum

Women in the military cannot create santorum in a fox-hole. Ergo they should not be able serve on the frontlines.

Women in the military should be about visible panty lines and how good one looks in a uniform.

@Benedick: Right? More than one and all I want to do is roll over and watch reruns of Shameless.

@JNOV is like, Peace?: The Wasp is in the Pacific now on war games practicing old school storm the beach amphibious assaults with your friends the Marines.

@JNOV is like, Peace?: The Jobs book is OK. But not much more than that. Best section is his return and the 4 quarters on the whiteboard. Best and most interesting writing is Jobs himself in the epilogue. The book itself treads so lightly around any supposed transgressions it becomes quite irritating. This is not the biography he, or we, deserve.

This review in the NYRB is more informative than the book.
