Senator John McCain

Look, people, this guy is a bona fide war hero.

Yes, there's always a "but" isn't there, Mr. Monarchist? Yes, there is. I heard the Senator on the Michael Medved show earlier today talking about abortion and being pro-life.

(deep breath)

So McCain says that he's a "federalist" on this issue, after a little prodding by Medved, and that should individual states decide in the case of the eventual overturn of Roe vs. Wade to create their own laws on abortion he thinks that's appropriate.

(Big, huge, Al Gore-mocking SIGH)

Let's take it from the top, shall we? Governments are instituted among men to protect our God-given rights. Among the rights given us by our Creator is the right to Life. Government at any and every level should be in the business of protecting the inalienable rights of citizens. To suggest that a state has the right to pass laws endorsing abortion is as patently absurd as suggesting that a state has the right to pass laws endorsing slavery. They don't, for the record. And anyone who tells you so is an utter fool. Well, that's a little harsh. Maybe they just don't dig on the Declaration of Independence, that's all.

That sound you hear is our greatest President, the Old Rail Splitter, rolling over in his grave.

Once again I say "Give us a candidate that we can vote for with a clear conscience!" Fred Thompson sounds interesting so far.

I find it interesting that Mr. Tancredo and Mr.Paul both either missed the vote on the hate crimes legislation that passed the house on Thursday, or chose not to vote.

McCain doesn't believe in "a woman's right to choose?"

What a jackass!

Hey, it's me, that dufus who was trying to peck a feight on absolute libertaianism (which is a severe departure for me for reasons with which you may already be familier). I figured that it would take actually coming on in and reading exactly what you had to say on the matter before I fully realized what a ... dufus I was. Turns out I was right ... not during the time that I was being a dufus but by coming on in and reading. If only...

Mr. Adams,

And here I am, having forgotten even where we departed from agreement! Suffice it to say that we're all our own harshest critics, so don't sweat it.

I was heedlessly arguing infavor of state's rights on the issue, you know, like a good copperhead.
