Pro-choice on lightbulbs

There's an irony in the belief that Americans should be free to decide whether or not to kill their babies but should not be free to choose a lightbulb that won't damage future babies in utero. Disclaimer: my personal motivation for the legalization of incandescent bulbs is migraines...maybe liberals just like killing and crippling people (for the children, heh)?
WASHINGTON - How many members of Congress does it take to change a light bulb? Americans may soon find out, courtesy of a contrarian piece of legislation introduced this month by Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota.

Freedom of choice/freedom from debilitating pain is "contrarian." Think about that for a minute.

In true Red Star fashion, most of the article is given to people pooh-poohing Bachmann. I enjoy this quote:
"We are working on a light bulb bill. If the Democrats can hose up a light bulb, don't trust them with the country."
