I am the very model of a modern Gay Lib General

(On CNN's planting of a Gay general at the GOP debate. To be sung to the tune of Gilbert & Sullivan's I am the very model of a modern Major-General.)

    I am the very model of a modern Gay Lib General,

    I stick the gotcha questions to them, liberal and sexual,

    I know the commissars of CNN,

    and if they ask me who I am

    I tell ‘em "just don't ask don't tell !'

    I'll drop a really big bombshell

    To screw up Rudi, Mitt and Fred

    And Ron Paul for a compliment!


    Ooohhh!!


    I am the very model of a modern Gay Lib General

    and if you really promise not to tell

    I'll shaft ‘em as I target ‘em 

    For Hillary and Billary

    And all the guys in unit ten

    All officers and gentlemen

    Who're in the Hotel Federal

    For conduct homosexual !


    Yeesss!!!

   

    I am the very model of a modern Gay Lib General

    though sexy and adventurous,

    I fight much better when in love

    But really just a normal guy

    That's hot for unit unity

    If they're cute in Army uniform!



(refrain) Everybody!

Update: Is he really a general? Human Events thinks not: (hat tip Jack Kemp - not the politician)
According to Col. Bill Campenni (USAF, ret), one of President Bush's squadron mates in the Texas Air National Guard, there is no such thing as the California National Reserve of which Kerr claimed to be a former member.

Campenni told HUMAN EVENTS that Kerr is not even a retired Army General.

"He retired as a California Army National Guard colonel," said Campenni. "It is common at Guard retirement ceremonies to give an honorary promotion to colonels to the STATE rank of Brigadier General...[but] it has no meaning other than a fancy certificate for the wall and use of the title at local Guard functions." 

Campenni said the rank of general is not federally recognized and the title can not be used or the rank worn outside the state.         

Although CNN claimed they verified Kerr's military background and that he had not contributed any money to any presidential candidate, it's unlikely that no one at the network was aware of his identity within the Clinton campaign. 

But whether they had knowledge or not, it was CNN's journalistic responsibility to find out.
