Tuesday AM Stuff

Dem Tennessee Representative Steve Cohen made this impassioned appeal on behalf of embryonic stem cell research in June 2007, though it was to no avail of course; however, now, President Obama will act on the urgent matter of funding for this emerging science (here) in which we are now miles behind thanks to Former President Highest Disapproval Rating In Gallup Poll History (and I'm down with BarbinMD here; just try calling out Nancy Reagan on this, Flush Limbore and you other right-wing bloviators...and way to go, Cardinal Rigali, to spread your loathing all over this, a lifeline for people with a wide range of illnesses - let us know when you want to launch another nuisance postcard campaign again, OK?)...

Update: Yep, not much for me to think about based on this (despite the pleadings of the U.S. House Repug from "Man Tan"; maybe Rigali can wax indignant with the House minority leader if he wants).

...and I neglected to note that another of the principal obstacles in the matter of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, James Dobson, stepped down as head of Focus On The Family (and I'm sure he still believes the Repugs still give a fig about his precious "family values"; here is a little tribute video to one of the high priests of hypocrisy).
