good lord... please rid me of my headache

President Bush has announced that he will appoint Dr. W. David Hager to head up the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee. He wrote, with his wife Linda, Stress and the Woman's Body, which puts "an emphasis on the restorative power of Jesus Christ in one's life" and recommends specific Scripture readings and prayers for such ailments as headaches and premenstrual syndrome. Oh, he also wrote As Jesus Cared for Women: Restoring Women Then and Now.

Well, at least we saw this one coming.

What is your point? What did you see coming? I don't understand your implications. Would you please just come on out and say it?

Thanks

Well, i was really only getting at the fact that Bush's stance on abortion and reproduction rights in general has been known for a long time now. While this appointment is quite extreme and unfortunate, it is in no way surprising.
