Bush, AIDS, and Malaria
Hilzoy comments on a story about a new malaria prevention vaccine. To summarize, clinical trials show the vaccine is about 53% effective in infants five to 17 months of age, and 65% as effective among children who are 16 weeks old or younger.
Regular readers may recall my post this weekend on how, in some quarters, they feel Bush is a Great Man for his efforts to combat AIDS in Africa. Remember – GW was against condom use… and condoms are more effective at reducing the spread of STDs than this disease is at combating the spread of malaria.
If he had any sort of consistency, GW would be against the use of this vaccine. And if they had any consistency, the folks at the National Review would wax eloquent about his efforts to combat malaria after GW came out against the vaccine.
