Oh, goody!

Just so blacks don’t feel singled out, Bush has decided to appoint some people whose bigotry is against gays, instead. (Or maybe “as well”; it’s hard to keep track.) One of them will be serving on the AIDS Commission.

Thanks (and welcome) to the Disgusted Liberals, who have taken as their mission “helping liberals help themselves.”

(Well, someone has to.)
