Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.

- Earnest Benn

Could it Be? Politics in Science and the FDA?

As hard as it may be for some to fathom, it appears that the GAO has found something unusual about the way the FDA rejected Plan Bs application to be sold over-the-counter.

Plan B is a morning after pregnancy pill, and with a bit of Clear Politics the FDA managed to inject itself well beyond the science and decline the application. Is that not like saying, We prefer you use some other method, were uncomfortable with your choice. Yes, its legal, but were uncomfortable, and we dont want you to make us uncomfortable.

It is unfortunate the right does not understand how similar they are to the left: We want the government out or our lives, unless it is an important issue, and we will define important.

Freedom? Right.
