Dole’s spelled DOLT

If you’re offended by naughty words, stop reading now. There will be plenty of them in this post.

Elizabeth Dole, unfortunately a US Senator, has done the biggest bit of Republican ass-licking, and issued the biggest “fuck you”, of anyone in the United States Senate: She’s moved to rename a bill to appropriate funds to fight HIV/AIDS and other diseases in Africa after Jesse Helms!

You’ll know doubt remember that I was delighted to hear that Helms had finally died. This is because more than any other person Helms was responsible for the deaths of people from AIDS in America. He was an evil, contemptible sack of shit and for Dole to now seek to honour him means she must be no better.

Think it’s an exaggeration? Consider these choice Helms quotes from an excellent post entitled “Elizabeth Dole Says ‘Fuck You’ To Americans Who Died From AIDS” by Joe.My.God.:

Jesse Helms, the man who in 1987 described AIDS prevention literature as "so obscene, so revolting, I may throw up."

Jesse Helms, the man who in 1988 vigorously opposed the Kennedy-Hatch AIDS research bill, saying, "There is not one single case of AIDS in this country that cannot be traced in origin to sodomy."

Jesse Helms, the man who in 1995 said (in opposition to refunding the Ryan White Act) that the government should spend less on people with AIDS because they got sick due to their "deliberate, disgusting, revolting conduct."

Jesse Helms, the man who in 2002 announced that he'd changed his mind about AIDS funding for Africa, but not for American gays, because homosexuality "is the primary cause of the doubling and redoubling of AIDS cases in the United States."

Many people hold Ronald Reagan responsible for adding to the early AIDS death toll by his inaction on the pandemic, but it was Helms' actions in thwarting early research that inarguably hastened the demise of many thousands of Americans. How many of my friends, of your friends, would be alive today if the life-saving medications had arrived just one fucking year earlier?

Fuck YOU, Senator Dole. Fuck you with something hard and sandpapery.

I couldn’t possibly agree more.

Update 17/07/08: Turns out Liddy Dole is up for re-election this year. Well, I think we should all send here a nice jolly present to thank her for her service: US Citizens and Permanent Residents may make financial donations to Dole’s Democratic opponent, Kay Hagan. I'm sure it would be nice for North Carolina to have a real Senator in that seat for a change.
