Bush’s Bipartisanship: Appoint extremists to manage family planning and reproductive rights

Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, called Keroack’s appointment “striking proof that the Bush administration remains dramatically out of step with the nation’s priorities.” This was from the Washington Post writeup on this dangerous appointment.

And she makes a good point. According to this report, 82% of us disagree with this kook’s ideas.

The only practical suggestion — beyond blogging about it and writing and calling your representatives in Congress (you can write to Pelosi if you want to feel like you did something) — I read in all of this was to make sure the right person gets into the White House next time around.

In the meantime? More bad policies justified with bad science.
