According to a post today on "The Daily Dish" by Andrew Sullivan, the authors of the GOP's party platform have been co-opted by the extremists on the Christian right.
"The party is now formally comitted not just to forbidding government from funding research [re: embryonic stem cells], but also to banning private funding for such research."
Sullivan says "I'm unaware of any previous commitments to banning private scientific research because it violates Christianism."
Then he asks the really big question which hits directly at the heart of our mainstream media which is so enamored of McCain, so disregarding of truth, so caught up in the minutiae of the moment:
"Why isn't McCain asked about this? Why is this not a major story? Not as vital as whether a campaign set is Greek or Roman or just, well, columns for large TV screens?"
