Party of death
Forget all that French philosophy mumbo jumbo about the inseparability of sex and death; this ain't no Bataille -- this is the "theoconservatives," as Andrew Sullivan calls them.
Noting that religious conservatives are successfully preventing vaccination against HPV (a sexually transmitted virus) which would reduce the instances of cervical cancer in women, Atrios writes: "Religious conservatives would prefer that people die than have sex. That'd be really funny except one of those conservatives is on the CDC's immunization committee."
Which is sort of my reaction to most policy proposals over the past several years. You want to do what? Ha, that's really... what? You have the power? And you're serious....
Sullivan, a pro-war, fiscal conservative, writes: "These people would rather people die of AIDS and cancer than do anything to 'encourage' sexuality. And they have the cojones to call the Democrats the 'party of death.'"
