Bush is great at taking on problems that don't exist. Enriched uranium...the crisis in Social Security...his State of the Union Addresses are expert escapades in made-believe. So this year's declaration of war against human-animal hybrid cloning was just one more in that tradition.
Is he truly paranoid about such "manimals"? Or has he gone off the deep-end?
Or...is it just another code sent to the religious ultra-right?
When Santorum speaks out against gay lifestyles he talks of beastiality. When Cornyn vilified homosexuality, he compared it to having sex with a box turtle.
...and now, Bush speaks about the unnaturalness of merging human and animal.
Maybe I'm the paranoid one now...but I also thought W. was just off-message when he talked about the Dred Scott decision in the '04 debates. Turns out he was telling the religious right that he was anti-choice.
They speak a code that I don't understand. Is Bush gay-bashing in a way that sounds like science fiction?
