Culture of Life. Sometimes.

Slate has a nice little article today comparing and contrasting Bush's stance on stem cell research with his stance on the death penalty. A sampling:

"The President is committed to medical research that does not violate the dignity of human life or exploit one human life for the benefit of another." - White House fact sheet

"I happen to believe that the death penalty, when properly applied, saves lives of others. And so I'm comfortable with my beliefs that there's no contradiction between the two." - Dubbaya
What do we call it again, when we profess one set of beliefs, but practice another? Something about hippos or something?
