Blood Suckers

Michelle Malkin (you already know how I feel about her) takes Maureen Dowd to task. Dowd, in all her quasi-intellectual superiority, suggests that Bush's reelection...

rushes backward, stifling possibilities, stirring intolerance, confusing church with state, blowing off the world, replacing science with religion, and facts with faith. We're entering another dark age, more creationist than cutting edge, more premodern than postmodern
In her world, the Bush "health care plan will probably be a return to leeches"

As Malkin points out, there is nothing to return to as leeches have continued to hold a place in successful medical treatments all along. She goes into much more detail debunking Dowd's claims - and gives us a great quote from Orrin Judd

Here's as good a definition of the difference between conservatism and liberalism as you're likely to find: liberals can't comprehend that leeches work, because we've used them for thousands of years, but they do think that Christopher Reeve would be walking around today if only they sacrificed enough lives at the altar of Stem Cell Research. And they think we're the fanatics.

Need a visual on those leeches? Fine, look here or here
