It started with Zell Miller, continued with Bill Maher, and now has reached the common angry-Democrat-in-the-street. From Straight male seeks Bush supporter for fair, physical fight.

The net makes it so much simpler to arrange these things than it was in the old days, don’t you think?

    President Bush has announced his plan to select Dr. W.
    David Hager to head up the Food and Drug
    Administration’s (FDA) Reproductive Health Drugs
    Advisory Committee. The committee has not met for more
    than two years, during which time its charter lapsed.
    As a result, the Bush Administration is tasked with
    filling all eleven positions with new members. This
    position does not require Congressional approval.
    The FDA’s Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee
    makes crucial decisions on matters relating to drugs
    used in the practice of obstetrics, gynecology and
    related specialties, including hormone therapy,
    contraception, treatment for infertility, and
    medical alternatives to surgical procedures for
    sterilization and pregnancy termination.
    Dr. Hager is the author of “As Jesus Cared for
    Women: Restoring Women Then and Now.” The book blends
    biblical accounts of Christ healing Women with case
    studies from Hager’s practice. His views of
    reproductive health care are far outside the
    mainstream for reproductive technology. Dr. Hager is a
    practicing OB/GYN who describes himself as “pro-life”
    and refuses to prescribe contraceptives to unmarried
    In the book Dr. Hager wrote with his wife, entitled
    “Stress and the Woman’s Body,” he suggests that women
    who suffer from premenstrual syndrome
    should seek help from reading the bible and praying.
    As an editor and contributing author of “The
    Reproduction Revolution: A Christian Appraisal of
    Sexuality Reproductive Technologies and the Family,”
    Dr. Hager appears to have endorsed the medically
    inaccurate assertion that the common birth control
    pill is an abortifacient.
    We are concerned that Dr. Hager’s strong religious
    beliefs may color his assessment of technologies that
    are necessary to protect women’s lives or to preserve
    and promote women’s health. Hager’s track record
    of using religious beliefs to guide his medical
    decision-making makes him a dangerous and
    inappropriate candidate to serve as chair of this
    committee. Critical drug public policy and research
    must not be influenced by antiabortion politics.
    Members of this important panel should be appointed on
    the basis of science and medicine, rather than
    politics and religion. American women deserve no less.
    There is something you can do. Below is a statement to
    be sent to the White House, opposing the placement of

    I’m not volunteering. Mental fights are more my style.

    Can you say “KKK”?

    Or perhaps “Rodney King”?
