Curious, George ...

"Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research, human cloning in all its forms, creating or implanting embryos for experiments, creating human-animal hybrids, and buying, selling or patenting human embryos."-- GWBush [SOTU, 1/31/06]

This is what Dear Leader had to say to the assembled Houses of Congress and the American People - that he and the crazed pack of Christ-mongering assholes that own him want to close up the science of genetic biology. Seal away forever the hope and promise that genetic research could give to millions of people who suffer from disease, deformity or disability as a result of drawing the wrong card in the genetic poker game.

One would wish that George Bush's parents will never suffer the slow degradation of memory and life that is Alzheimer's, or that his daughters never look upon their children and know that their offspring have Downs' Syndrome.

As for human/animal hybrids, who's to say what's human and what's animal? I, for one, regret that we lost our prehensile tails all those many years ago - having a tail would be very handy for toting groceries or opening doors if your hands are full.
