It finally appears that the Bush Administration is making some progress when it comes to sex (now if only they could eat pretzles and not pass out, or stop making up words... one can only hope...).

Last night, MTV ran a program featuring Secretary of State Colin Powell answering questions from our country's youth. During the program, Powell made some comments about how he advocates the usage of condoms in the prevention of AIDS, as opposed to simply abstaing from sex all together, which is the current standing of the Bush Administration.

I'm so proud that our current administration is making progressive steps forward (so what if they're steps that most people started taking in 1947...).

And the Bush Administration is even backing him up...sort of.

But White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Powell's message was consistent with White House policy, noting that Powell limited his remarks to those who are sexually active.


Does that mean that those of us who aren't sexually active shouldn't use condoms? Not even if they do make fun balloons?
