    and I really hope there is something the Congress can do about this nitwit.  I just wonder if there is really that much Congress will actually be able to do.  The only power they really have regarding the population affairs office is funding.  I suppose the House Appropriations Committee could refuse to fund the office, but that seems like cutting off our nose to spite our face.  And the administration would just move money from another office's budget anyway.

    I really believe I can be more effective by sending money to Planned Parenthood directly than by trying to influence this administration to do anything constructive on this front.  That and work my tush off to make sure a Democrat is elected president in '08.
