Interesting column by Steven Thomma on Bush’s shrinking support among the bat-shit crazy, wingnut caucus. The latest offense was the morning after pill and Bush’s comments that he agreed with the decision rather than just went along with it for political expediency.
“This is not an issue that grabs people around the dinner table. It doesn’t grab people like the war or taxes, or even marriage or the abortion decision in South Dakota,” McClusky said. “But people are going to wonder why all these pro-life, pro-family groups are suing this administration.”
Let’s talk about framing of the issue for a moment. Pro life? These groups are anti abortion and have little to say about issues affecting life. Pro family? Precisely who appointed them to speak on behalf of “family”? Upon what basis should I consider them credible, let alone more expert than I on what my family needs?
