But they did. One Stacey Campfield, who is without excuse when he suggests what he does in a recent radio interview. He’s right when he says
“I’m not a historian on AIDS,” he said in an interview Friday.
Then don’t pretend to be. Hold your views, represent your constituents, but don’t speak when you shouldn’t on medical topics- because when you do, you prove yourself to be a buffoon, a dilettante. The fact that he continues
“But I’ve read and seen what other people have read and seen and those facts are out there.”
He proves he’s a dilettante. Why is it that politicians think they’re qualified to be medical doctors or theologians or anything but what they are: pandering vote-hunters willing to toss red meat to their ravenous minions. If you’re an expert in a field, have at. If you aren’t, shut up.
On the origin of AIDS, Campfield told Signorile at one point, “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men It was an airline pilot, I believe, if I recall correctly.”
What. An. Idiot. Has he read anything reliable? Any real medical research? And, to me most importantly, what about all the innocent little children and adults who have AIDS because of blood transfusions or women whose husbands are profligate Ted Haggard-ians and have brought HIV home? Does he demonize them as well?
Good grief. I just hate stupidity. Especially when it spews from people who should know better than to spew it.
