Elizabeth Dole Proposes to Memorialize Jesse Helms on New HIV/AIDS Bill
SOURCE:

This week, the Senate considers S. 2731, the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008. The bill would authorize spending for fiscal years 2009 through 2013 to provide assistance to foreign countries to combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.

On Monday, Elizabeth Dole (R-DOES NOTHING) proposed an amendment to add Jesse Helms' name to those legislators honored in the title of the bill.
To echo annoyinghandle, Jesse Fucking Helms.

Unbelievable.

Too bad there's not a bill to fund research into sexual lubricants specifically for gay black men. That would be the best Helms memorial.

OMFG. Hell, no.

The only thing that Jesse said about AIDS before he passed away was that he wished he did more to rain money for AIDS. That was after he was out of office and I thin khe started to reflect on his anti-gay agenda and actually feel just a ping of guilt.

Honor for AIDS? Preposterous. Dole is a loser, however, I fear she will win again here. :(

Can we harness the energy of him spinning in his grave?

I watched his Funeral Eulogy on C-SPAN when I was drunk and a little pissed off at the world. It didn't help; they were talking as if he was Jesus or something; how he was such an upright productive member of society, filled with compassion and always did the right thing.

THIS IS WHY I DRINK.

Then again, I guess you can't go to hell for lying about a guy who is already dead, so they could have said he did a whole bunch of good shit he never in fact did.
