Speaking of Pro-Life Women

A social conservative leader friend tells me she has gotten her first “aren’t values voters the problem?” calls. The MSM will try to claim this and blame social conservatives, led by Sarah Palin. The McCain campaign, if it should lose, may encourage this.

It will be fascinating if Prop 8 wins and they still argue this.

Don’t blame Palin. (And when Palin is blamed, do not blame Romney.)

The nature of the unforced error is that it is wholly unnecessary and typically distracting. And so it was. Days before, as the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’s election as pope was approaching, a ... Read More
