Radio Ranter Mark Levin Calls Embyronic Stem Cell Research a "Hoax"
Click here to read the latsst from the radio clown.

In truth, it's Levin who is being "divisive," loioking for anything that can demonize liberals, and make an American majority feel like the fringe left, on the eve of the mid-term elections.

1. It's great having a Repig basing his opinion on faith-based science

Repigs like this would have told Columbus not to sail to India because, after all, the World is flat.

3. the Republican war on science
Is the exact opposite of the idea that Republicans tout of this being a great nation, in which our children have more opportunities and a brighter future than their adults.

ignorance is bliss. and blissfully ignorant americans are more likely to vote Republican.

7. A Repig friend just refuses to handle the truth about stem cells
This guy, a friend who otherwise is a good person, can't get over how he can be against stem cell research (calls it cloning) yet is for in vitro fertilization and doesn't get how embryos are thrown out...instead of being used for science.

It's a head scratcher...

4. I'm sure that
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 11:06 AM by Mz Pip
if someone suggested 100 years ago that we would be able to cure infections using a medicine dirived from mold it would have been considered a hoax, too.

Just because the research is in its infancy does not mean that it holds no promise. If we quit before we even get started we will never know for sure what could come of it.

8. And This Is, Of Course, Based upon His Years Of Scientific Background
Right? What do you mean no? He has no background in science? No background in anything other than ranting like an idiot? I'm shocked. SHOCKED! Who would think a radio ranter would have no education or knowledge in those things about which he or she rants?

Oh wait. I guess that applies to all of them. Doesn't it?

9. that's the joke of it
Rush and Levin and Coulter are the equivalent of Cliff Clavin with a microphone. It doesn't matter whether what they say is "true." It matters whether it's entertaining, and can sell advertising.
