Yes, yes, I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that Barack Obama, at a campaign stop in Lebanon, VA, was quoted as saying about his opponents, “But you know … you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. You know, you can … wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change, it’s still going to stink after eight years.” And yes, there is already a backlash of major proportions emerging against him for this comment.
Mr. Obama, do you realize that your campaign is disintegrating each and every time you, Biden, or the liberal elites (esp. those in the media) make the mistake of insulting Sarah Palin to a country that admires her? And especially for insulting those qualities that are endearing her to large numbers of women? Mr. Obama, I realize that polls don’t mean much right now, but do you realize that you’re losing your women supporters in droves? If I were you, I’d hint to your supporters to stop questioning Sarah Palin’s ability to both govern and be a mother, because it’s not doing you any favors. Just a little friendly advice. (But by all means, keep it up.)
I still just have to admit incredulity in regard to all of this Palin-bashing. Not for its existence. That can be expected no matter what. What is amazing is its source: liberal women. (Two of the most pathetic being liberal columnists Sally Quinn and Maureen Dowd.) And what is further astonishing is their inability to realize the way they’re sounding…in a word, hypocritical.
Okay, there are some who are recognizing the fact that, after years of Feminists having demanded it all, including the possibility to have both kids and a career, this sudden 180 degree reversal in regard Palin is pretty obvious. And they’re saying, uh, ladies, do you wanna just zip it, you know?
As these events unfold, I have to say that it has been just fascinating to witness. Not only the Feminist reversal (ie, she should be at home with the kids), but the utter shock of the left that the right loves and admires Palin as well. I think they thought that those stuffy conservatives would likewise scoff at her ability to lead and be a mother, or sew the Scarlet A on her daughter. I even heard someone express their shock that Rush Limbaugh likewise loves her. Which all just really illlustrates that fact that the left has no idea how conservatives really think. Who is, in fact, the party of misogynists? It ain’t the party that loves Sarah Palin, I’ll tell you that much.
And CINO Joe Biden gets a theology lesson from two prominent US Catholic Bishops, following his weekend interview on Meet the Press in which he stated that when life begins is a personal and private matter to each individual, and that for him, life begins at the moment of conception. He said, “Look, I know when it begins for me. It’s a personal and private issue. For me, as a Roman Catholic, I am prepared to accept the teachings in my church.”
Gee, don’t sound so happy about it, Joe. He also added that it would inappropriate to impose that view on others in a pluralistic society. Which is how most CINOs defend their position. It all sounds so honorable. Have your cake and eat it too! We’re “personally opposed, but we cannot impose our faith on others.” This is all well and good, until one realizes (as pro-lifers, the Catholic Church, and intelligent people do) that the question of when life begins is not a matter of faith, but one of fact. Religion need not answer the question, because science already has.
As Father Jonathan Morris puts it: (full article on the Too Good page)
“Determining when life begins is not a religious issue. It has nothing to do with faith. It is not about theology. Neither the pope nor the bishops have anything unique to say to Senator Biden about when life begins.
The Catholic Church simply reminds its members of the natural law that regulates human relations: do not kill each other. And it looks to modern science to determine what is human and what is living.”
The Bishops basically made this pretty clear, saying, “Protection of innocent human life is not an imposition of personal religious conviction but a demand of justice.” It’s a matter of justice, and civil rights and human rights. Innocent babies have the right to not be torn apart limb from limb simply because they happen to be inside the uterus instead of outside it. Of course, with Obama in charge, those infants who have made the transition outside of the womb are still not protected from this fate. (see BAIPA Bill.)
And no, I’m not going to stop talking about abortion and the BAIPA bill. I refuse to let it rest. One day, we’re going to look back at this period in our history with the same horror as we look at the Holocaust. We will recoil at the mass extermination of millions of babies just the same as we recoil at Hitler’s genocide of the Jews. “Mass of tissue?” The advent of the ultrasound has done more to disprove this sad and unintelligent assertion than probably anything else. Technology is making it more and more difficult to hold onto this position, and there are less and less doctors willing to perform abortions and less nurses willing to assist with them. The day will come when abortion is recognized for what it really is, and I plan on not being one of the culpable.
