Jesus to Mary Magdalen: “I’d like to hook you up with some basic health care, but my holy father George W Bush has decreed that you must spread AIDS throughout the third world.”
“I really like Roberto Cavalli fashion because it is so sexy. And I think he will do something amazing with the tail.”

Elsewhere in the New York Times, an editorial points out that the Bush administration has suspended the First Amendment for American AIDS workers overseas. In order to get government jack, AIDS groups are now required to tow the party line regarding prostitution (the party, FYI, just says no to hookers), despite the fact that in many strange and exotic lands, “controlling AIDS among prostitutes and their clients is the key to keeping the disease from exploding into the general population.” The new requirement that Americans abroad pooh-pooh the sex trade will sorely impede their ability to help the women stuck in the life.
The Bush administration, of course, believes that helping Bangladeshi sex workers get a pair of shoes so they can visit a health clinic makes life too cushy for’em. W views prostitution as a lifestyle choice. Those 15,000 Bangladeshi women who were kidnapped and forced into sex slavery last year were probably asking for it. And in any case, W would prefer that impoverished third world women just nobly starve to death, the way brown people with big pleading eyes are supposed to do, rather than shamefully try to stay alive by selling it. Isn’t that what Jesus told Mary Magdalen?
Dehumanize, objectify, exploit, and punish. W stands for Women!
