SCHEDULE."

ANYWAY CONGRESSMAN PAUL, OF

COURSE, TURNING IN ANOTHER

FINE PERFORMANCE LAST THURSDAY

WHEN THE REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

GATHERED IN FLORIDA FOR THE

FOX NEWS GOOGLE DEBATE.

THE 83rd SUCH DEBATE SO FAR

THIS YEAR FOLLOWING OF COURSE

THE PREVIOUS CNN TEA PARTY

DEBATE, THE REAGAN LIBRARY

DEBATE, THE HISTORY CHANNEL

CIVIL WAR RECREATIONIST DEBATE,

THE TRON DEBATE.

THE "ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE

DARK" DEBATE, AND THE "DON'T

TELL RICK SANTORUM WE'RE

CANCELING THE DEBATE" DEBATE.

BY THE WAY, SANTORUM...

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

YEAH.

SANTORUM STILL CAME IN FIFTH

IN THAT DEBATE.

THINGS AREN'T GOING HIS WAY.

SO WHAT CAN WE POSSIBLY LEARN

ABOUT THE CANDIDATES DURING

THEIR THIRD DEBATE IN 15 DAYS?

PROBABLY NOTHING.

BUT THE AUDIENCE CONTINUES TO

SURPRISE.

>> IN 2010 WHEN I WAS DEPLOYED

TO IRAQ I HAD TO LIE ABOUT WHO

I WAS BECAUSE I'M A GAY

SOLDIER.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOSE MY JOB.

MY QUESTION IS, UNDER ONE OF

YOUR PRESIDENCIES, DO YOU

INTEND TO CIRCUMVENT THE

PROGRESS THAT'S BEEN MADE FOR

GAY AND LESBIAN SOLDIERS IN

THE MILITARY?

>> (AUDIENCE: (BOOING).

>> Jon: YEAH, BOO.

I GIVE THE AUDIENCE CREDIT.

IT TAKES A LOT OF BALLS TO BOO

A GUY WHO CAN STICK YOUR HEAD

IN HIS BICEPS AND CRACK IT

LIKE A WALNUT.

LOOK AT THOSE THINGS.

THOSE AREN'T BICPEPS.

IF I'M SURE IF THIS GUY TURNED

INTO THE HULK, HIS ARMS WOULD

STAY THE SAME SIZE.

THEY WOULD JUST TURN GREEN.

BUT OF COURSE RICK SANTORUM

HANDLED THIS UGLY INCIDENT

BEAUTIFULLY.

NO, HE DID NOT CHASTISE ANY

INDIVIDUALS IN THE CROWD FOR

THEIR DISGRACEFUL OUTBURSTS,

BUT ON THE PLUS SIDE DON'T ASK

DON'T TELL.

>> THAT POLICY WOULD BE

REINSTITUTED.

AS FAR AS PEOPLE WHO ARE IN, I

WOULD NOT THROW THEM OUT

BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE UNFAIR

TO THEM BECAUSE OF THE POLICY

OF THIS ADMINISTRATION.

BUT WE WOULD MOVE FORWARD IN

CONFORMITY WITH WHAT WAS

HAPPENING IN THE PAST WHICH

WAS SEX IS NOT AN ISSUE.

IT SHOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE.

LEAVE IT ALONE.

KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.

WHETHER YOU'RE HETEROSEXUAL OR

HOMOSEXUAL.

>> Jon: WHAT PLANET DO YOU

(BEEP) LIVE ON?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

HONESTLY.

WHAT PLANET?

THAT SEX IS NOT AN ISSUE?

YES, THE ARMY HAS NEVER

MENTIONED SPOUSES HETEROSEXUAL

OR HOMOSEXUAL.

WE NEED TO GO BACK TO AN ARMY

WHERE SOLDIERS NEVER SAY

ANYTHING ABOUT THAT.

LIKE THIS CHANT: I DON'T KNOW

KNOW BUT I'VE BEEN TOLD ESKIMO

GENITALIA ARE MIGHTY COLD.

THE CLASSIC AIRCRAFT, THE

MEMPHIS PAT.

AND THE PLANE THAT DROPPED THE

ATOMIC BOMB, THE ENOLA "NONE

OF YOUR BUSINESS."

THE GUY IS AN I
