MILITARY READINESS vs. BASE PANDERING….Hitchens was wondering the other day about liberals and the whole gays in the military thing, so here’s a progress report: the Carpetbagger reports that HR 1059, which would end discrimination in the military on the basis of sexual orientation, now has 89 cosponsors. Of course, 86 of them are Democrats. Apparently Republicans continue to believe that gay bashing is more important than military readiness.

But hey ? at least we know where they stand.
