Men of Science

What's not to like about James Holsinger? At last a Man of God, very much like Our Dear Leader, is nominated to be the Surgeon General of the United States of Jehovah, or the USJ, as I've come to call it. If selected, I pray that he continues the administration's science policies, which keep the American People from Sin. I'd hate to see him kick our Intelligent Designer and His helpmeet, the Republican Party, out of the examining room.

Should he choose to accept the challenge, he'd have a lot to live up to. He'll need to be tough, and let's be clear, Compassionately Conservative. There have been some bitter disappoints to the administration recently, and I'd hate to see them sustain more heartache.

Consider the case of Elizabeth Blackburn, a cell biologist named by Time magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. She's a winner of the 2006 Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research and an expert on the impact of the diseases of aging on the biochemical changes in cells.

To the administration's credit, she was appointed to the Presiden'ts Council on Bioethics. Then came the interview: the first question she was asked: who did you vote for?

Well! I'm glad they got that key consideration out of the way quickly; then they began the serious work of The Council, addressing such questions as, You don't need any of those pesky embryonic stem cells because everything is wonderful with adult stem cells. When she asked, "Where's the evidence?" they'd say, "Somebody wrote a review article about adult stem cells." Bitch that she was, she'd tell them that a review wasn't the same as primary data. The nerve!

Well! They straightened her out by not appointing her to a second term. Hah! Which reminds me of that whining ex-Surgeon General, Richard H. Carmona, who complained that the administration would not allow him to speak or issue reports about stem cells, emergency contraception, sex education or prison mental and global health issues. He was ordered to mention President Bush three times on every page of his speeches.

I never heard such whining! How does the President bear it? It would be easy to mention President Bush three times per page. Allow me to demonstrate. "Last night, as I sat belonely in my lab, I had a vision of (1)George W. Bush in the form of an adult stem cell, which is, of course, the cells the Lord has given us for the pursuit of knowledge." Or this: "Studies by the Focus on the Family show that virgins, as (2)President Bush has pointed out so many times, have yet to become sexually active." Try another! "Our President,(3) George W. Bush, has teamed up with the Lord in providing adult stem cells from Iraqi war victims for scientific research."

All this in a single paragraph! Surely, three mentions on a page should be a cakewalk for any serious scientist.

well if Holsinger should by some act of pyschosis get confirmed he should have no problem with the political pressures as he is IN their pockets already and as much a fundie nut job as one can find.

His VA bush one, background truly scares me, more than the pray teh gay away - why u might ask ? He worked in the Pentagon on J4 committees and i firmly believe his answer regarding our responses to a disaster as being one of his top priorities can be translated into him helping declare Martial Law -due to some trumped up germ warfare threat. Yep. He would help do that in a heartbeat. We have over 800 Fema detention camps newly refurbished by Haloburton - they will want them filled sooner or later.

I "pray" hard this wacko is not confirmed. Lulu Maude thanks for bringing this on going confirmation up on your blog. It got no air that I could find even on C span 3
