How about a productive front page diary about how we can win the election? Mydd has become the site for negativity. Yeah, you have to acknowledge polls that are not positive, but, really, don't get stuck there. What a bore and how unproductive.
And all this blows back on John McCain -- because he didn't vet her and because he keeps repeating the lies after they've been shown to be lies. It undermines his credibility to have done these things.
I need to? Huh. I don't see you providing any evidence.
My evidence comes from what is known about suburban women. They are pro-choice. And they won't vote for a Republican ticket that is against choice even in the cases of rape and incest. And I know a lot about elderly Jews and they are also very strongly pro-choice and extremely bothered by Christianist candidates.
Nope. This is a huge, huge issue for suburban women and for others as well. My 81 year old mother, a stalwart Clinton supporter who wasn't sure she would vote for Obama, is now firmly in his camp because of Sarah Palin's stance on abortion. And I'm sure the same is true for many elderly Jewish voters.
The idea that people shouldn't take the McCain-Palin position seriously on abortion because Cindy McCain said that Roe won't be overturned is, frankly, rather absurd. Does she guarantee what the Supreme Court will do?
And while we talk about Roe as if just a technical legal matter, we are in fact talking about people's lives. If Roe goes, women will be doing self-abortions and they will be dying of uncontrollable bleeding and septic shock, just as they did before Roe.
