Surgeon General’s Office meets the Salem Witch Hunts

As you’ve probably read by now, Bush has nominated Dr. James Holsinger to be the next Surgeon General. Holsinger’s biggest claim to fame is that he thinks homosexuality is a choice. Why, of course. As we speak, millions of young people who are just reaching puberty are thinking to themselves: “Hmmm, do I want to be gay or straight? Let me weigh the pros and cons. Gay people are constantly being called names, ostracized, threatened, beaten up, and sometimes even disowned by their families. Wow, that sounds neat. That’s my choice — I'm going to be gay.”

On July 12th there will be a Senate hearing on Holsinger’s nomination. If you think the Surgeon General of the United States should NOT be some clueless Biblewipe who thinks homosexuality is a choice — please click here and ask your Senators not to confirm Holsinger. The position of Surgeon General is too important to be filled with yet another unqualified Bush crony.

Sigh. No, I didn't know that. It seems there's a new outrage every day...
Thanks for the link!

Candace: Yup, a new outrage every day; that's about the size of it.

Where in the world is Bush finding these folks.

Has anyone ever taking the time to read his opinion on The Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality.

This is the same guy who actually worked as chief of staff for the VA hospital system.

I guess because he's a minister, that Bush picked him. What a President we have here in America folks.

Let's Talk: I didn't know he used to be chief of staff for the VA hospital system. I feel sorry for any gay veterans who were at his mercy.

Where is Bush finding these people? I think he is finding them under rocks, or maybe in caves.

Oy...here we go again. I was almost expecting that he'd nominate Bill Frist, but this guys so much worse.

It doesn't surprise me that Bush would pick a fellow homophobe. Thanks for drawing attention to this important nomination Tom. I signed the petition and passed it on to my friends.

Hell I thought George had some form of time machine and he was travelling back to the fifties to get all of his nominees. Not very progressive stuff even for a hack like George.

Snave: Yeah, that would explain some of these losers Bush keeps finding. BTW, you had another comment that Blogger wouldn't let me publish. The e-mail notification didn't have any "Publish" link to click on. You said "Or maybe he has a time machine and is going back to the 19th century and finding them there..." Yes, that too would explain how he keeps dredging up people like this.

Kvatch: I have to agree, this guy is even worse than Bill Frist, and that's saying a lot.

Leo: Yup, birds of a feather. Bush keeps staffing these positions with rednecks just like himself. Thanks for signing the petition.

Damien: Bush seems to be traveling at least as far back as the 1950s to get some of these people. Maybe even further back, to the Salem Witch Trials or the Spanish Inquisition.

don't worry. I'm sure most people think he's better than a SG who supports masterbation.

sometimes, I think the europeans are so much more mature.

wtf do people care about who is sleeping with who? the only ones you should care about is yourself and your spouse. And maybe your minor children. The rest? Frankly, there's enough kinky hetero stuff out there to make me PRAY to only be exposed to a normal healthy gay relationship.

OMG! Can I please use the phrase Biblewipe? [falling out of chair laughing]

Okay, seriously, this guy helped run our "excellent" VA hospital system? Say no more. The picture is clear. And how can this administration continue to support medical "professionals" who don't think science is all that? Pharmacists refusing Plan B, abstinence-only sex ed, and now this fruit bowl? Criminy!

Baxters Mum: I agree, most Europeans are a lot more level-headed and mature about stuff like this. To the rest of the world this country must look like a bunch of 10-year-olds squirming and giggling through a Sex Ed class. It's absurd. There are so many real problems that aren't being dealt with and everybody is worried about whether someone is gay or still a virgin or living in sin or whatever.

Mile High Pixie: Glad you liked "Biblewipe." Hope you'll use it. It's bad enough we have pharmacists who won't provide birth control pills, and now this. This absurdity has to stop sometime.
