"If she cans a female midshipman for drunkenness or for sexual promiscuity then I'll believe it."
Wow! Is that really your criteria for academic and military achievement? Who bangs who and who gets demerits for drunkenness?
I have no doubt that this lady is superior in every measure you could imagine. And probably has no demerits for drunkenness or has never banged for this position. And if you and all the other clowns claiming PC, where in the same room with her, you would easily know your own stupidity.
I have nothing against her, only the Navy higher ups who thought she was fit for the job. Obviously, the Navy had enough sense to name her as a NFO instead of a Navial Aviator. She couldn't hack it as a pilot. There have been two sets of standards in the Navy for the last few years, One for women and one for men. The men have been doing the heavy lifting and have been suffering the PC BS resulting in less promotions and the consequences of failure while the women have had no consequences for failure. Look at her political background, aid to Olympia Snowe?, Brookings Institute Legislative Aid in Clinton White House? What is going to inspire our young Naval and Marine officers in future wars? Her political skillset?
