Somebody read this and tell me that movement conservatism in the United States is anything other than a big screaming "fuck you!" to decency and compassion:

Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) has introduced “an amendment to name an HIV/AIDS relief bill after the recently deceased Jesse Helms ... Helms was notorious for his ignorant comments regarding HIV/AIDS. In 1987 he described “AIDS prevention literature as ‘so obscene, so revolting, I may throw up‘” and in 1995 Helms argued that “that the government should spend less on people with AIDS because they got sick due to their ‘deliberate, disgusting, revolting conduct.’”

I apologize to my fellow Oklahomans for exposing our little problem to the world here but hey, all you can do sometimes is laugh.

DP, no need to apologize. Oklahoma is not your fault. It's no one's fault, really. It's sad and tragic and wrong, but I don't blame you for it.
