Colonel, those fatigues look absolutely fabulous.

And, may I add, I love the way they show off your eyes.

President Obama, in a historic first for the Pentagon, has chosen to nominate Eric Fanning to lead, presumably from behind, the Army.  This latest move would make him the first openly sodomite civilian secretary of one of the military services.

Fanning’s nomination is the latest in a series of actions taken by the administration to advance the rights of sodomites throughout the federal government.

According to the Washington Post:

Fanning, who must still be confirmed by the Senate, has been a specialist on defense and national security issues for more than 25 years in Congress and the Pentagon. As Army secretary, he would be partnered with Gen. Mark Milley, who took over as the Army’s top general in August. Together the two men would assume responsibility for the Pentagon’s largest and most troubled service.

“Eric brings many years of proven experience and exceptional leadership to this new role,” Obama said in a statement. “I look forward to working with Eric to keep our Army the very best in the world.”

Fanning’s role as Army secretary would give him influence over the generals the Army selects to rebuild the service after a long stretch of counterinsurgency wars in which soldiers dismounted [a practice that makes Fanning so mad he could just spit] from their tanks and armored vehicles and found themselves leading foot patrols through remote villages.

I’m guessing one Army motto that will be left almost intact is: “Never leave your buddy’s behind.

Our culture is so toasted.
