What in the hades is Barry Obama smoking? ABC News is reporting that Obama told Planned Parenthood that sex education for Kindergartners is a good idea! Now I don’t mind having a discussion with a progressive re: sex education in general. But I would like to think that even the staunchest supporter of sex ed in classrooms thinks this is a bad idea.
ABC News’ Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is “age-appropriate,” is “the right thing to do.”
“I remember Alan Keyes . . . I remember him using this in his campaign against me,” Obama said in reference to the conservative firebrand who ran against him for the U.S. Senate in 2004. Sex education for kindergarteners had become an issue in his race against Keyes because of Obama’s work on the issue as chairman of the health committee in the Illinois state Senate.
“‘Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergarteners,'” said Obama mimicking Keyes’ distinctive style of speech. “Which — I didn’t know what to tell him (laughter).”
“But it’s the right thing to do,” Obama continued, “to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools.”
No Barry, it isn’t the “right thing to do” to be teaching a 5 year old about sex. The five year old should be learning how to color inside the lines not the birds and the bees.
