Bush Vetoes Stem Cell Research

Heckuva job, Bushie.

I'm sure those discarded blastocysts will be glad that you acted to preserve the integrity of their cell ball mass. Oh wait! No, they won't. Because they lack even the sensory capacity of a sea sponge. Fantasizing about what they might or might not feel is a masturbatory exercise in anthropomorphic personification.

And if I want anthropomorphic personification, I'll read a fantasy fiction novel. Or maybe a comic book. (Has it really been *that* long since they discontinued The Sandman? Damn. I guess it has.) The writers are way more entertaining than your typical Republican fetus fetishist.

Why find a cure when you can throw them in the trash? Why fight terrorism when you can invade Iraq? Why lead when you can play John Wayne?

And, oh, you sort of mentioned masturbation in your post, which means you are going to burn in hell. Because we can't talk about anything involving sex; it is sinful. Torturing people, turning the DOJ into a political tool, destroying the environment, etc...,? That's ok.

It's a funny old world when something you do by yourself in private that affects no one else is a sin, but causing misery or death for thousands is no big deal. I just don't understand it.

Yeah, but you forget a key point; our president has spoken directly to God on these matters, so what do we know?!
