Embryonic stem cell reversal is distraction, congressman says - CNN.com

Embryonic stem cell reversal is distraction, congressman says - CNN.com: "Embryonic stem cell reversal is distraction, congressman says"

Translation: We invest heavily in people who help us make arguments that align with our economic mentality. These people cost a lot of money, have huge organizations, and shift their priorities with all of the agility of a container ship. When you jump off the economy, the topic which all of our political machines are wrangling with in hopes of undermining any real progress to curry political advantage in the next election, then you cost us a hell of a lot of money.

Besides, what I'm really saying is what America, or at least the press, seems to believe - that we can only handle one thing at a time. So economy now - stem cell stuff later.

Folks, this stuff drives me up the fucking wall. Seriously, who reading has ever - EVER - had the luxury of doing one thing at a time? It's absurd. It's simplistic. It's insulting.

Fix it. Fix it all. Fix it all at once.

Good point, especially considering the economic stimulus that increased research might account for.
