Drinking Liberally: Blastocysts For Bush

George W. Bush, in a closed-door signing, whipped out the first veto of his five and a half year Presidential tenure. The Bush that lives in my head commented, "This veto will protect hundreds of frozen blastocysts from thawnation and fiddlin'. I'm agin' murderin' clumps of cells smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. Don't matter to me that they're just going to toss the damned things into a trashcan, better to protect those little frozen young'uns than try to cure Parkinson disease, Cancer, Old Timer's, and whatever the hell else kind of sicknesses the poor people get. And besides, my frothy evangelical, anti-science base will eat this veto up with a biscuit!"

Drinking Liberally, that weekly gathering of left-leaning former fetuses, comes together again tonight to dissect the political scuttlebutt surrounding President Bush's War on Science. We meet every Thursday for casual conversation and alcoholic delights at the Asheville Brewing Company on Coxe Avenue in downtown Asheville from 7-10pm. Everyone's welcome, so come see who you've been missing!
