    too funny... this guy routinely appoints the exact opposite person for each leadership position... it's like bizarro America the past 6 painful years... 1/20/09 can't come soon enough... our government should do everything in its power to erase all Bush legislation and appointments from it's books...

    Bush Nominates Homophobic Surgeon General Who Wants To Cure Gays

    Last week, President Bush nominated James W. Holsinger to become the next Surgeon General of the United States:

    As America’s chief health educator, he will be charged with providing the best scientific information available on how Americans can make smart choices that improve their health and reduce their risk of illness and injury. … I am confident that Dr. Holsinger will help our Nation confront this challenge and many others to ensure that Americans live longer, better, and healthier lives.

    But as BarbinMD points out, Holsinger’s nomination to be “America’s doctor” is troubling. He has a long history of prejudice toward gays and lesbians. Some examples:

    – Holsinger founded Hope Springs Community Church, which “ministers to people who no longer wish to be gay or lesbian.” Holsinger said that he sees homosexuality as “an issue not of orientation but of lifestyle.” [Lexington Herald-Leader, 6/1/07]

    – In the early 1990s, Holsinger resigned from the United Methodist Church’s Committee to Study Homosexuality “because he believed the committee ‘would follow liberal lines.’” He also warned “that acceptance of homosexuality would drive away millions of churchgoers.” [Arkansas Democrat Gazette, 5/26/07; Time, 6/24/91]​

    Wonder if he thumped his chest when he appointed this guy, "I am the President".

    Maybe he was a holdover from this project.

    US military pondered love not war

    The unconventional proposals were made by the US Air Force
    The US military investigated building a "gay bomb", which would make enemy soldiers "sexually irresistible" to each other, government papers say.
    Other weapons that never saw the light of day include one to make soldiers obvious by their bad breath.

    The US defence department considered various non-lethal chemicals meant to disrupt enemy discipline and morale.

    The 1994 plans were for a six-year project costing $7.5m, but they were never pursued.

    The US Air Force Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, sought Pentagon funding for research into what it called "harassing, annoying and 'bad guy'-identifying chemicals".

    The plans were obtained under the US Freedom of Information by the Sunshine Project, a group which monitors research into chemical and biological weapons.

    'Who? Me?'

    The plan for a so-called "love bomb" envisaged an aphrodisiac chemical that would provoke widespread homosexual behaviour among troops, causing what the military called a "distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale.
