Blastocyst rights now!

In a stunning victory for scientific illiteracy, Dubya did, in fact, exercise his first-ever presidential veto to blow away the stem-cell research bill.

There was never any doubt, of course; Bush's preference for pandering on issues of symbolic importance to so-called "social conservatives" is well known, and a bloody-minded false consistency on *anything* having to do with abortion is clearly far more important than the possibility of empowering research that could alleviate the suffering of millions.

This mouthbreathing idiot has done more damage to the conservative movement in America than anyone the Democratic Party could have come up with, and Republicans are going to pay the price in November, and in 2008.
