We Don't Need No Stinking Science

Well, it looks like the Right's disdain for truth and facts is not limited to Faux News. According to this WaPo story, Congressional investigators have found egregious errors in abstinence only sex education programs. I suppose that conservatives are willing to tolerate Big Brother, paternalistic misinformation when it's used as a means to prevent those naughty adolescents from getting off. (Of course, that runs smack into this little problem-- Columbia University researchers found that although teenagers who take "virginity pledges" may wait longer to initiate sexual activity, 88 percent eventually have premarital sex.)
