Scottbrown

On This Week, Barbara Walters asked newly-elected Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) what his views are on 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'.

Said Brown: "I think it’s important, because as you know we’re fighting two wars right now. And the most — the first priority is to — is to — is to finish the job, and win those wars. I’d like to hear from the generals in the field — in the field — the people that actually work with these soldiers to make sure that, you know, the social change is not going to disrupt our ability to finish the job and complete the wars."

When pressed, Brown wouldn't say whether he's for or against it but repeated his plans to talk to the military.

ABC Gay Double Standard Continues with Barbara Walters Special

Lovegame

I hate to have to belabor this point because I'm really sick of it, but...for the record...

Last night on Barbara Walters' ABC special the network had no problem showing a clip of Lady Gaga in a lip-lock with a female dancer in her "Love Game" video (above), but when it came time to discuss Adam Lambert's performance at the American Music Awards in a segment following shortly thereafter, Walters said, "He also turned the music industry inside out, doing things we won't show you here."

Why not?

TMZ reports: "ABC says there is not even a trace of homophobia in the network's decision to 86 the Adam Lambert kiss from the Barbara Walters special last night. The network says, 'It was an editorial decision to show very little from the performance and focus on the fresh, new interview with Adam Lambert.' Interesting, because the 'fresh new interview' was all about 'the kiss.' ABC went on to explain its decision to show girl-on-girl by saying, 'The Lady Gaga kiss was used quickly in context of things that upset her father.'"

Barbara Walters and Joy Behar weigh in.

Walters warns of the giant wagging penises: "I think this could make people — if you're not homophobic — make you."

Says Behar: "I just want to address one thing about the homophobia. I don't think that people are gonna become anti-gay from the movie cause he is such a stereotype and so out there as this "gay, queen wacky" that there are straight people who are just as crazy, so if you don't know the difference there's something wrong with you."
