Bush Surgeon General nominee runs program to “cure” gays

So will he get a chance to cure Mary Cheney and her lover Heather Poe? And if Mary and Heather are cured, then will Heather still be the parent of their child? Has Bush at least asked Mary to try to be cured by his Surgeon General nominee? Or does Bush not believe that his Surgeon General nominee’s anti-gay science is legit, and if so, then why is he nominating him at all?

Fortunately, this nutjob needs to be confirmed by the Senate. And Hillary and Obama will be playing a key role in that confirmation:

“A date has not been announced for confirmation hearings for Holsinger’s appointment. He will go before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, chaired by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass. Three Democrats on the committee are presidential candidates: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois and Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, a graduate of the University of Louisville law school.”

I trust the Democrats won’t be confirming a “cure the gays” nut as our next Surgeon General. As Mitch McConnell always reminds us, it takes 60 votes to pass anything in the Senate. Hopefully the Democrats have been listening. More from DKos.
