Score Another One for the Flat Earth Society

Despite an overwhelming rejection of the Right Wing nutjob agenda two weeks ago, Bushie still seems intent on rewarding his insane base. The latest atrocity is his appointment of Dr. Eric Keroack to head the Office of Family Planning in HHS. What is remarkably kooky is that the Office is charged with "provid(ing) access to contraceptive supplies and information to all who want and need them with priority given to low-income persons" and Keroack is a wacky abstinence only person. Now, to be clear we are not talking about birth control to minors here. This is reproductive health services provided to ADULTS. And this guy, along with is crazy friends in the abstinence only community, want to deny contraception to consenting adults. Because, to people like this, sex is ony for procreation and if you indulge in it just for pleasure, well God has to punish you for being such a slut.

In light of this recent appointment, I can't help but wonder if the next NASA administrator will be someone who believes we live in geocentric solar system. Oh, shit.. I just gave them an idea.
