This comes from Kevin Drum of "Washington Monthly", who is quoting CNN. Everything, it appears, is the fault of terrorism, including tooth decay and bad reception on your TV. Here it is:
George Bush's Medicare bill prohibits the importation of cheap drugs from Canada. This has proven to be an unpopular rule, and Bush spokesmen have struggled to come up with persuasive reasons for their stand.
Today they finally did:
"Cues from chatter" gathered around the world are raising concerns that terrorists might try to attack the domestic food and drug supply, particularly illegally imported prescription drugs, acting Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Lester M. Crawford says.
....Crawford said the possibility of such an attack was the most serious of his concerns about the increase in states and municipalities trying to import drugs from Canada to save money."
Are there any depths to which these guys won't sink? What's next? Alleged al-Qaeda infiltration of labor unions? Email from Osama to the NAACP?
Every time I think the Bush administration can't get any worse, they get worse. Every. Single. Time.
