Was Brownie the ONLY person unqualified to do his job in the Bush Administration? Well, unless you like to think of all women as BITCHES, please explain to this bitch why the FDA has appointed a VETERINARIAN as the head of women's health?
FDA Commissioner Lester Crawford has appointed a man who has spent the majority of his career in the office of veterinary medicine to the position of acting director of the Office of Women's Health at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Dr. Norris Alderson will replace Dr. Susan Wood, a key women's health expert, who resigned on August 31 in protest of the FDA's handling of the application to make Plan B emergency contraception (EC) available over the counter.

Lesson Learned: If you women get all uppity and bitch too much about the politicization of emergency contraception, then we'll treat you like the bitches you are.
