Report: Rudy not asking or telling about DADT

 Rangelife Images GiulianidragAccording to the New York Observer's Politicker blog, GOP presidential frontrunner Rudy Giuliani is remaining coy about his support or lack thereof for the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. The Observer's Jason Horowitz quotes an emailed response he received from the Giuliani campaign, which reads:

"We're at war and now isn't the time to question our military's admissions policy."

How convenient. Now, it would seem to us who's seeking to shape this nation could proffer an opinion about both the war we're fighting overseas and the "culture war" battle we're facing over gay acceptance here at home. And it would seem that there is room to debate both, especially considering that an allowance of openly gay troops would only increase our military's strength (no matter how many "would hurt unit cohesion" arguments we continue to hear). But then again, we prefer to traffic in actual heartfelt communication, not politically advantageous sound bites.

Here's hoping as the all joyously head down this campaign trail, Rudy will do the only truly respectable thing and come out against the unrighteous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. After all, "now" is always a good time for a candidate to prove he is principled.
