Every fucking day it’s some new assault on decency with this bullshit administration whose only competency appears to be wanton assholery. Following on the heels of Bush appointing a total wanker to oversee Title X funding, now Mary Beth Buchanan, an anti-porn crusader called "the vanguard of Ashcroft’s attempt to impose his morality on others," has been appointed to be the acting director of the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. As Jessica says, get ready for funds meant for violence prevention "being diverted to conservative anti-obscenity groups under the rhetoric of protecting women."
Awesome. In related news, Sean Connery has been hired as spokesperson for Bush’s new "W is for Women" Outreach program.*
* Not really, but that shit totally seems possible, doesn’t it?
