aw crap. McCain was smart and picked a woman. Now he'll really steal all those stupid Hillary borg and "Democrats for McCain."
Why are the Republican's so much more savvy at manipulation?
If the Dems lose this election it'll be the biggest effing stuff-up in history.

National Politics has been more of a popularity contest ever since TVs became a standard household item. You'll always have half of the voters who actually know about the issues, and then the other half who are "Doin' mah civic duty!" and just vote for whoever seems like more of a good guy.

It seems like people that would vote for HIllary, though, would also be into a little something called women's rights. Like the right to a safe and legal abortion. Republicans not so much. And that's such a big issue...

I don't know. It just explodes my brain.

And what of the rights of the baby? Oh wait... my bad... gotta call it a fetus so we don't feel bad when we kill it.

If people are anti-choice, than by all means vote for McCain. But I am afraid some women are pro-choice, yet are also so Feminist and so pissed that Hillary didn't get the nomination they will vote for McCain/Palin even though they disagree on major issues like that.

I've never understood why both camps insist on being called pro-something. If one camp is pro-life, then why is the other not called pro-death? Or pro-choice vs anti-choice? Seems odd that both are pro-whatever and we have no opposite for the opposing camp.

That said, as a Libertarian I'm not about taking peoples rights away. I think what we do is none of the governments business up to the point where are actions infringe on someone else's rights. In this case, in my opinion, and I'm not trying to start anything here, I think the baby has rights.

I think it's odd that we have laws prohibiting both murder and child abuse, yet we seem to think that having an abortion is a perfectly acceptable birth control method. I used to wonder why we drew the line at the baby being born but then I found out about partial-birth abortions and realized that for many people, there really didn't seem to be a line at where this was no longer ok.
