Sometimes it's easy to forget how extreme the Bush government is. Consider this data point (my emphasis) :

Under the terms of the multi-million-dollar fund which have been made available under President Bush for abstinence education, schools and groups can only claim federal money for sex education programmes if the classes have as their 'exclusive purpose' the promotion of abstinence.
They must make clear that sexual activity outside of marriage is harmful, both mentally and physically. If contraception is mentioned, it must only be in the context of its fallibility.

How the hell do libertarians manage to stay so close to these people?
