Back when Mitt Romney was a grown-up, he supported “age-appropriate” sex education. But now that he’s regressing to adolescence in hopes of picking up the Republican nomination for President, Romney attacks Barack Obama for supporting … “age-appropriate” sex education.
I presume that means that Romney is for age-inappropriate sex education. No?
Update Here’s the YouTube clip, posted by Romney’s people. Astonishing! Romney says the appropriate amount of sex education for kindergarten kids is “zero.” That right. It’s crucial that kindergartners not be taught about sexual predators and how to avoid them.
Here’s the punchline: David Brody of Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcast Network is coming to Obama’s defense. “Romney’s comments suggesting that Obama wants to teach sex education to kindergarteners is a little misleading.” I have no idea why. Is Brody anti-Mormon? Pro-Fred Thompson? (Doesn’t look that way.) Favorably inclined toward Obama because of his religiosity? (Apparently not.) Or is Brody simply annoyed at having been lied to?
If I were looking for intellectual integrity, I wouldn’t look for it in the vicinity of Pat Robertson, but maybe Brody has some.
