With approval rating stuck in the mid-30s for months now, what is a lame duck president to do? How can he galvanize what little base he has left? One way is to make them feel as though they're under attack. Enter: James W. Holsinger.
President Bush has nominated Holsinger to be the Surgeon General of the United States. Helisnger has a long anti-gay history and even founded a ministry to help "cure" homosexuals of their dirty ways.
This is sure to meet stiff resistance when Holsinger comes up for confirmation, which will surely raise the dander of socially conservative Christians, who inexplicably buy in the Republican party year after year with no return on their investment.
Hell hath no fury like bored fundies hell-bent on martyrdom...
