    But that doesn't mean we should countenance the manipulation of children to achieve a noble cause.  And it is manipulation be definition.  12 year olds absolutely, positively, cannot form the intention to engage in political action at a highly partisan and high-stakes level.  To me this is an ethical no-brainer.  Is health care for poor children such a close call, politically and ethically, that we have to pull out the stops and put sick kids on the radio to make the case?  I sure hope not.

    I'm not killing the messenger, but as a parent I'd like to bitch-slap whoever sent him to deliver the message.
