Debbie Schlussel Shakes Things Up: Single Moms in the Military

Debbie Schlussel is a conservative pundit, lawyer, film critic and a proud Jew.  She recently caused a stir by saying that single mothers shouldn't be allowed to serve in the military.  I agree.  According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal:
Conservative pundit Debbie Schlussel recently called for a ban on single mothers in the military because they are "useless soldierettes" and their absence is harmful to their children, she said. Schlussel said deploying single moms "exacts more costs and bureaucratic BS than it's worth."
She points to the case of Spc. Alexis Hutchinson, the Oakland, Calif., Army cook who was arrested because she refused to deploy with her unit once her child care arrangements fell through. Hutchinson's attorney said officers advised the single mom to place her 10-month-old son in foster care while she was deployed. The Army has not confirmed that statement.
