The Little Lady of the White House does Africa

This is almost too irritating to link to. Laura Bush is on the road and the good little wife offers these pearls of wisdom in defense of her hubby.

She thinks illegal domestic surveillance is just fine because the American people expect to be spied on, she assures us Cheney is solid as a rock and is a fine VP and this may actually be the quote of the day. In defense of the White House's unnatural fixation on abstinence only programs, which comprise a large portion of our AIDS/HIV aid and which she is promoting on this little tour to Africa, she says:
"I really have always been a little bit irritated by criticism of abstinence because abstinence is absolutely, 100 percent effective in fighting a sexually transmittable disease," she said. "When girls are not empowered, girls are vulnerable, and their chances of being able to negotiate their sexual life with their partners and to make their partner chose a condom are very low."

Right Laura. Spending millions telling young girls who are routinely partnered to older men while in their teens to just say no, is much more effective than telling them how to avoid being infected when they have sex. What planet is this family living on?

This is unrelated but important. Bostonian Exile is advising us to remove our links to News from Davison. An adult entertainment person is using the name for his blog and it may result in spam or other nonsense for those of linked to the site.

Kevin, we miss you. I hope the person using your old blog title didn't turn the site into adult entertainment in order to slime your name and position on the council.

This the first time I've heard of this happening. Thanks for the tip. I'll remove it tonight.
