What’s Brewing: Navy sex video update; RNC candidates oppose gay marriage; Palin re-tweet

Your weekday morning news update from Instant Tea:

1. All five major candidates for chair of the Republican National Committee said during a debate Monday that they oppose same-sex marriage. Watch video of their comments above.

2. Owen Honors, the Navy captain who produced those raunchy sex videos laced with gay slurs for the crew of his aircraft carrier, is likely to be temporarily relieved of his command pending an investigation, NBC reports. Meanwhile, the American Family Association blames the scandal on the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” suggesting that this is an example of what will happen anytime anyone in the military says something negative about homosexuality.

3. Speaking of DADT repeal and people being relieved of their duties, whoever manages Sarah Palin’s Twitter account could be next.
