Framing Issues in Incredibly Dishonest Ways

Scott McClellan on stem cell research:

"The president doesn't believe we should be creating life for the sole purpose of destroying life."

Well, yeah. But stem cell research creates life for the sole purpose of saving life. It's not like we're tossing all of our stem cells into a barn and lighting it on fire. We're using them to do research that will save lives. To say the "sole purpose" of stem cell research is to destroy life is pretty reprehensibly dishonest, especially coming from an administration that professes such admiration for a man whose life could have been saved or prolonged by it.
