Quote of the Day: No Sex Please, We're in the Army

| Fri Sep. 23, 2011 1:10 AM EDT

From Rick Santorum, answering a question about allowing gays in the armed forces:

I would say, any type of sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military .

Hmmm. Something tells me Santorum hasn't spent a whole lot of time around soldiers. Also of note: this exchange came right after the audience booed a soldier serving in Iraq because he was gay. Classy bunch.
