More on Holsinger's feelings about anal sex

Here's more info on Holsinger, the guy Bush has nominated to be Surgeon General. Apparently, anal sex really freaks him out:
And today, the Human Rights Campaign released a document Holsinger authored in 1991 as a member of the United Methodist Church's Committee to Study Homosexuality. Titled Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality, Holsinger's religious tract-cum-scientific paper is a fascinating window into the perverse imagination of homophobia. In essence, Holsinger argues that male-female "reproductive systems are fully complementary" because "anatomically the vagina is designed to receive the penis." The remainder of his paper is a graphic account of the "delicate" rectum which is "incapable" of "protection" if "objects that are large, sharp, or pointed are inserted" into it. From there Holsinger continues to discuss what he imagines are the pains (and pleasures?) of anal sex, from "fist fornication" and "sphincter injuries" to "lacerations," "perforations" and "deaths seen in connection with anal eroticism."
I wonder how many search engine hits I'll get from this post that mentions anal sex so much.

But seriously, can the Senate please send this guy back? Is it too much to ask that you smackdown Bush on something? Need I remind you how unpopular Bush is?
