In a wide-ranging CNN interview, former Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell lashed out at ex-vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and said the Pentagon should reconsider the policy barring gays from serving openly in the military.
Colin Powell seemingly never makes a misstep. This ultimate DC insider / survivor / chameleon is virtually never seen to be publicly backing the losing side. So, it is highly significant that he is deliberately calling out Palin and Limbaugh for their extremism.
