Politicians Say D.B.D. Adventure Society Should Allow Women To Join
Bipartisan agreement can be rare in Washington, but politicians from both parties are coming out in favor of allowing women to join the all-male DBDAS.
"Don't you think it's time the DBD joined the 21st century - or the 20th - and allowed women members?" Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) tweeted Friday.
Republicans candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich also said they believe that women should be allowed to join. Romney said, "My goodness." Santorum was the only dissenting voice, "I dislike women, just think about how Eve messed everything up."
The GOP hopefuls' comments came after the Obama administration addressed the issue Thursday.
"He believes, his personal opinion is, that women should be admitted," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters. "We are kind of long past the time when women should be excluded from anything."
Sir George Mallory, leader of the DBD, was unavailable for comment. However, Loki, a beloved DBD mascot, and noted man-dog, using a sophisicated form of canine-sign language indicated through a series of carefully choreographed pantomines (including several inappropriate gyrations) indicated that the exclusive adventure society had no immediate plans to change their secretive induction process. Note: Most members of the DBDAS are currently deceased.
