Now, this is politics

I’ve posted before that I’m inclined to believe (while I’m not ready to advocate its use for several reasons) that Plan B is not an abortifacient.

(See here and here. Or look here for a posting of one of the research articles that convinced me to reconsider my earlier rejection of post-coital contraception.)

However, why do the articles in the mainstream press still focus on the “politics” of the Bush administration and the decision to change the status of a prescription drug, but don’t seem to even notice the blatant politicization of the Senate confirmation of an Executive Branch appointee?

In the meantime, I have to sign for a federally limited supply of pseudoephedrine, a decongestant!
