Wednesday, I wrote about Republican opposition to a provision in the stimulus bill that provides for money for STD education and prevention, and how the funding would actually end up saving the country money down the line. But at least one Republican senatorial aide doesn't want to hear about that -- it's icky.
"Senate big spenders will never be overbid in wasting tax dollars. But how in the world does STD research create jobs? Wait. ... Don't answer that. I don't want to know," said Wesley Denton, an aide to Sen. Jim DeMint, South Carolina Republican.
