The one where I explain what Daffy Duck is doing...

One has to applaud the sheer bravado of the White House for appointing blatantly unqualified people to positions of actual importance. You know, like George W. Bush. ZING! No, today's story is about Dr. Eric J. Kerouack, who was appointed Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. The title is a mouthful, but it's important: he was head of the federal agency responsible for family planning. Now, he resigned some time ago, for classically boring reasons like lying on his resume, defrauding Medicare, etc. etc. Dullllllll! However, what caught our eye in's expose was this:

Though he has no formal research credentials, Dr. Keroack has lectured widely from a PowerPoint presentation that uses Loony Tunes characters to illustrate his theory that premarital sex damages the female brain, making non-abstinent women incapable of forming emotional bonds.
Huh? Looney Tunes? I only hope it involved the one where Bugs Bunny dressed up as a female bunny to trick Elmer Fudd, those were always the best. Though god only knows what it had to do with the effects of pre-marital sex on the female brain.
