As promised President Bush thankfully has used his first veto on the bill promoting ESCR.
The above is the Photo the AP ran with the story. This photo was taken yesterday with Cardinal McCarrick, Papal Nuncio Pietro Sambi, and the new Archbishop of Washington Donald W. Wuerl. Even though they were not at the White House today the implication is of course that the veto is just a pure political move satisfy the religious right and that the whole issue is just the old faith against science redux. Some ill informed (nothing new there) senators even brought up the Galileo case to make thier point.
