Laura Bush: No, I’m not a scientist, but we had lots of science books when I was a librarian….
Laura Bush takes a stand…and shows why she probably shouldn’t be allowed to take a stand:
First lady Laura Bush defended her husband’s policy on embryonic stem cell research Monday, calling Democratic rival John Kerry (news – web sites)’s criticism “ridiculous” and accusing proponents of overstating the potential for medical breakthroughs.
“We don’t even know that stem cell research will provide cures for anything â€” much less that it’s very close” to yielding major advances, Mrs. Bush said.
So…we don’t know if research will pay off so we should limit the research to ensure that it won’t pay off.
Maybe we should put that money into research to cure stupidity…
