The Shameful House Scuttling of the Alternatives Sources Bill

Richard Doerflinger sure can write fast. I spoke to him last night when I got off the plane at Dulles and he informed me that the “alternative sources” legislation had been scuttled by a legislative maneuver by the “embryo or nothing” (my term) stem cell zealots, Representatives Mike Castle and Diane DeGette.

Richard was really steamed and apparently was up all night penning this excellent rebuttal, “Anti Life, Anti Science,” to Castle/DeGette’s disengenuous talking points memo against the alternative sources bill. That bill is not really controversial, by the way, given that it passed the U.S. Senate 100-0.
