Introducing (The New and Improved) “Baghdad” Bob

I guess it wouldn’t be a village if there wasn’t at least one idiot. Last night Virginia unveiled her latest candidate for the coveted position and his name is Del. Bob Marshall (R-Prince William). In what might be the most blatant attempt to court Virginia’s cretin vote, Marshall appeared on WTTG Fox 5, aka MyFoxDC, to announce to the world his hatred for “the gay” and his utter ignorance of the constitution by announcing that he will introduce legislation in the next VA legislative session to ban gays from serving in the Virginia National Guard.

“This policy will weaken military recruitment and retention, and will increase pressure for a military draft,” Marshall said. “After 232 years of prohibiting active, open homosexuals from enlisting in our military, President Obama and a majority in Congress are conducting a social experiment with our troops and our national security…In countries where religions and cultures find homosexual acts immoral, the Obama administration’s repeal policy will work to the detriment of all American troops in securing local cooperation with our nation’s foreign policy goals.”

The Senate’s vote to repeal the 17-year-old federal ”don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy came a week after the House approved it. President Obama has said he will sign the bill.

Marshall, who is considering running for U.S. Senate in 2012, is one of the House’s most conservative members. He said Article 1, Section 8, Clause 16 of the Constitution gives Virginia the authority to uphold the ban by “reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.”

“The Constitution never would have been ratified if states were not reserved unqualified control of the militia, now called the National Guard,” he said.

America, please join me in welcoming the new and improved Baghdad Bob Marshall to the moron sideshow. I am sure he will make his namesake proud by upholding the long held tradition of failure-propagandists the world over.
