ZOMG: Bush's Cloning Nightmares to Come True!

Remember in his Jan. 2006 State of the Union address, when Bush pulled one of his greatest non-sequiturs ever out of his ass, requesting that Congress pass legislation to ban the creation of "human-animal hybrids"? My god, that was a thing of beauty. I had fun with human-animal hybrids for months.

But it's no joke anymore, bitchez:

Plans to allow British scientists to create human-animal embryos are expected to be approved tomorrow by the government's fertility regulator. The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority published its long-awaited public consultation on the controversial research yesterday, revealing that a majority of people were "at ease" with scientists creating the hybrid embryos.
Did anyone consult with King of the World George W. Bush?! Obviously not! Because he is categorically not "at ease" with it! ZOMG—there are going to be mangaroos hopping around in no time!

The consultation, a £150,000, three-month mix of opinion polls, public meetings and debates, found participants were initially cautious of merging animal and human material, but became more positive. "When further factual information was provided and further discussion took place, the majority of participants became more at ease with the idea," the HFEA's report says.
Hmm, well, I still wouldn't count on America's support anytime soon. Our president is fixed and resolute—and he will not be swayed by your facts, Britain! So keep your stupid mangaroos to yourself!
