just this guy, you know?

A new poll came out showing that 69% of Americans favor allowing openly gay people in the military – up from 64% 5 years ago…and even 58% conservatives support it! For a point of comparison, when Truman integrated the army only 13% of the population supported it. Stephen Colbert is doing his show from Iraq this week (in front of troops) and last night did a segment on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell which was pretty ballsy.

  1. Yeah, a lot of namby-pampby’s talk about how we should wait for equal rights until the straight population is ready to give it to us. However, we have more support now than when African-Americans were “given” their rights. Also, C&H is probably the best multi-frame comic strip ever. Farside would get the 1-frame award. 🙂
