Synopsis

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Gay, Gay Gay is edited like the clip montage that plays before every TV show to remind the viewers of previous storylines.  McLeod dissected all the content of a 2007 Boston Legal episode down to a single one minute in order to point out the absent topic of decried Clinton administration law Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, which famously made coming out in the military grounds for dismissal, but also ostensibly forbade excluding people from service based on presumed homosexuality. The result is a frenetic minute of incoherent blabber that reflects perfectly the alarmist tone of conservative news reports about the bygone policy.
