Republican Senator Brownback Wasting Our Time and Money
(picture from Orbitcast)
He has introduced a bill to the US Senate that goes like this:
The Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act would ban the creation of human-animal hybrids. Human-animal hybrids are defined as those part-human, part-animal creatures, which are created in laboratories, and blur the line between species. The bill is modest in scope and only affects efforts to blur the genetic lines between animals and humans.
Which basically seems aimed at protecting America from this:

Yes...that's right, the Republican extremist Senator from Kansas wants to protect America from fantasies. I am a developmental biologist and I can tell you that no one, NO ONE is trying to make a human-animal hybrid and it is abyssmally stupid to introduce this bill. If voters in Kansas aren't embarassed as hell by Brownback's stupid bill, they sure as hell should be.
It is no wonder Republicans are so unpopular right now. The Democrats are working to get a sane energy policy that addresses global warming and gives us energy independence, working to create American jobs, working to restore our standing in the world, and generally GOVERNING. Republicans are trying to protect us from myths and fantasies. What fools. Sadly, foolishness like Broanback's wastes the time of the Senate and that costs the taxpayers money.
