Green: Stem cell conversion, or diversion?
Extreme Congressman Mark Green, who marches to the Right-to-Life drummer on the stem cell research issue, says he has a major accouncement to make Tuesday on stem cell research.
It's one of two things:
1. Green has been struck by lightning on the road to Damascus (one of his 100 stops in 100 days) and is going to do a complete reversal, using a recent breakthrough as the cover. The anti-choice extremists are unlikely to let him do that.
2. More likely, he's going to try to throw up some more dust and smoke, to try to confuse people about the issue and give them the false impression that he is pro-science and pro-research.
Whichever it is, the reason is not in doubt. It's because he's getting his ass kicked on the issue and sees that it could cost him the election.
If that's the case, a big old flip-flop about now won't save him. But don't put it past Green, Mark Graul, and the rest of the Green Team weasels to give it a try.
