Anderson Cooper's Gay Friends Misinformed

Elton Blasts Bush

Singer Elton John had some choice words for President Bush before his foundation’s gala. When asked to comment on the American president’s AIDS policy, John took aim at Bush’s anti-sex stance:

They’ve made a grave error in giving millions to abstinence programs. They don’t work. They were told in the beginning that it wouldn’t work. It’s a tragic waste of money. Please don’t listen to those idiots. God almighty.

Meanwhile, Anderson Cooper, who also appeared at the gala, explained that his “young gay friends” underestimate AIDS:

I talk to young gay friends in New York, and some of them seem to think the AIDS problem is a thing of the past. … The reality is that it’s getting worse, not better.

Yes, yes it is
