Getting tough in a diplomatic-pressure way


Hillary Clinton: “I also believe we have to get tough in a diplomatic-pressure way with Iran, and I think that helps us do it. If it saves American lives by labeling them a terrorist organization, I’m going to label them a terrorist organization.” For the children. For the children.

Speaking of our children, our dirty, dirty children, does anyone else see a giggling attempt to insert irony into this WaPo headline: “Abstinence Programs Face Rejection”? The article quotes one Stan Koutstaal, director of the Office of Abstinence Education in the Dept of Health and Human Services, deploring the increasing number of states pulling out (ahem) of federal abstinence-only programs: “It’s the youths in these states who are missing out.” No comment.
