Just consider this our little “well, isn’t that special” moment for those out there that whine about the Religious Right’s undue influence on the Republican party
"I will continue whipping my colleagues to oppose bringing the bill to the floor for a vote until a clean vote against public funding for abortion is allowed," Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said Monday in a statement.
He said last week that 40 Democrats could vote with him to oppose the legislation -- enough to derail the bill.
That felt so good, we may need a smoke.
The meme’ of the radicalization of the Republican party has become the talking point du jour for the left and we couldn’t be more pleased. The left’s belief that the Republicans risk permanent marginalization because of a huge swerve to the right is a premise that is so spectacularly flawed, we should take to pushing it here ourselves.
Because, god knows, we don’t want the liberal-Left to think that they are open to any electoral vulnerability as they passed a $787 billion political payoff package and as they continue to ram a personally invasive $1.2 trillion health care plan and an economically ruinous and environmentally dubious cap and trade bill through Congress.
No, siree. Nothing radical about any of that.
