Recess Appointment For Holsinger

It appears that Dubya will appoint Dr. James Holsinger as Surgeon General while Congress is in its holiday recess. Holsinger's nomination has been stalled since he was grilled by Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) about the whackjob doctor's infamous 1991 paper on homosexuality in which he used a plumbing metaphor to describe gay sex.
Like male and female pipe fittings, certain male and female body parts are designed for each other. When the complementarity of the sexes is breached, injuries and diseases may occur.
Yesterday Holsinger resigned from the board of trustees of the Asbury Theological Seminary, presumably in preparation for his appointment as Surgeon General. Holsinger and his wife co-founded the Hope Springs Community Church which operates an "ex-gay" ministry. A recess appointment would be good until the end of 2008.

This is a typically sneaky move by Dubya and a profound disappointment to the legislators and activists who have strenuously objected to Holsinger.
