Women Serving in Combat Positions Is a Batty Idea

I applaud the idea of women in combat, not because of any misguided idea of equality for women, but equality for men. Men have been treated as the disposable sex for far to long, it is time women share in this burden. Now, since women can serve in combat they should be required to register for the draft. Let the women and homosexuals fight the next war and let the men sit it out.

Last Thursday Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and other U.S. military leaders lifted the ban on women serving in combat positions. I, for one, think this is a great idea and have a few modest proposals, if the brass inside the beltway is open to suggestions, on how they should deploy the dames (and whom they should deploy).

First off, if you truly want to eviscerate the enemy—namely Muslims—then I propose sending the most nerve grating and foul women Hollywood has to offer straight into hot zones as our forward armies. I’m a thinkin’ starting off with Roseanne Barr, Joy...
