Stacking the Deck

STACKING THE DECK….Apparently George Bush’s Council on Bioethics still has a few members who actually disagree with him about stem cells and cloning.

Can’t have that, can we? As of today, they’re gone. It’s good to know that scientists with opposing viewpoints are being sent packing back to the liberal universities where they belong.

On a related note, the Washington Post reports that one of the new members, Benjamin Carson, laments that “we live in a nation where we can’t talk about God in public.” I wonder exactly what nation he lives in? Surely I’m not the only one who’s noticed that talking about God is hardly in short supply here in the United States?
