Saving It!

When Franken wrote Lies and the Lying Liars he got into a bit of trouble because on Harvard letterhead he sent a request to various Bushies for them to give an inspiring story about their abstinence for a book on abstinence-only education called "Saving It!" that Franken wasn't actually planning to write. The idea being that prominent figures should tell their stories about how they managed to remain abstinent until marriage.

Now the Bush administration is pushing abstinence-only education which isn't just about teen abstinence, but abstinence for all unmarried individuals. Given that this is the case it's more than legitimate to ask unmarried members of the Bush administration if they are, in fact, saving it.
