Elizabeth Dole, probably the biggest phony in Washington (and that's saying something) is trying to rename the big AIDS Relief bill in honor of Jesse Helms. It's kind of like re-naming NAMBLA "The Sons of Pope Benedict" (actually, not a bad idea). I was so inspired, I just had to write to her.
Dear Senator Dole,
Congratulations on your attempt to rename the AIDS relief bill after Jesse Helms as well as Henry Hyde. It's fitting that Sen. Helms be remembered in this way, for few people in Washington did as much to ensure that AIDS would continue to grow and become the worldwide tragedy it is today.
