It’s an aside, but Derb is depressing this morning. An issue that gets to the very heart of who we are as a people — do we respect human life or do we not? — John D. calls “a boutique issue of no importance to the life of the nation” in his should-conservatives-stay-home? piece today.
There’s no point to getting into another debate on these issues. John and I will never agree. As for me, though, I am grateful W vetoed that federal funding for ESCR bill. And I don’t look forward to the stem-cell-research and cloning debates to come in a Democratic Congress. A Republican one has been bad enough.
