A teachable moment?

2 days ago the GOP went apoplectic over family planning funds in the stimulus bill. Obama and Congressional Democrats removed them.

Today the right wing has gone apoplectic over the inclusion of $350 million for STD prevention.

Perhaps now would be a good time to stop caving in to the howler monkeys every demand. Mr. President, you will never satisfy them so do what you think is right and ignore the John Boehners and Eric Cantors of the world. They had their chance, they fucked it up and the country overwhelmingly chose you, Mr. President, to fix it.
