All ready now? Then repeat after me; DDT does not kill little birdies. Mosquito's DO kill little babies.
But if there is one thing liberals enjoy doing is killing babies. Anything that so engorges their god-complex is a thing they'll go to the mattresses over, and the mere thought of sickening 250 MILLION people a year...10 percent of whom will die or be rendered so debilitated they'd wish they had...is simply too thrilling to let go.
And know what? I couldn't give a rats ass if DDT DID soften egg shells. I happen to like babies lots more than birdies but that's just me.
