Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Bush's First Veto Proves Something

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
- Hanlon's razor, Anonymous

Today, President Bush issued the first veto of his presidency, killing a bill that would have eased limitations on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. He claimed the bill "crosses a moral boundary."

Consider this:
  1. That moral boundary was not crossed when Bush allowed federally-funded research on cell lines created prior to August 9, 2001.

  2. Bush supports fertility clinics, which generate the large number of embryos destined to be destroyed.
The President is obviously untroubled by the inconsistencies in his own argument. Going back to Hanlon, on the question of whether Bush is stupid or evil, I guess I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
