SALETANISMS….Will Saletan complains today about John Kerry’s stand on stem cell research:

Why does Kerry call it a “ban on stem-cell research” instead of a ban on federal funding of embryonic stem-cell lines derived after Aug. 9, 2001? Because the shorter phrase, while scientifically inaccurate in four egregious ways, is more politically effective.

This is pretty rich coming from a guy who spent two full months of his life bemoaning the fact that Kerry spends too much time explaining himself in detail. Sheesh.
