It’s been less than 24 hours since the Pentagon announced they would remove the longstanding military ban on women in combat, and our friends on the Right wasted no time in going off the rails crazy about it. Apparently, lifting the ban on women in combat is the worst thing that’s ever happened to the military. (At least since the last worst thing that’s ever happened to the military.)
A round up featuring the very best of the very worst.

The Pentagon must think we are done fighting “real wars.” Why else would they let women play army?
We have apparently arrived at the Golden Age, free from strife and the threat of foreign enemies. Little else can explain so gratuitous a decision as to place women in combat units.
