I’m forced to ponder whether Focus on the Family engineered what turned out to be the tepid Tim Tebow ad to make pro-choicers look foolish. If they did, they scored. Big time.
After weeks of issuing press releases, doing the cable news circuit, blogging, and generally having collective conniptions, feminists look pretty foolish for getting their — um — undergarments in a knot over the commercial.
The ad wasn’t that big a deal. It didn’t contain any buzzwords — not “abortion,” not even “life” — and it’s made social lefties look like rabid reactionaries. Case in point: Jehmu Greene, president of the Women’s Media Center, said two weeks ago on the Bill O’Reilly show that the ad was trying to take away choice “from all American women.”
That was pre-mature considering no one except CBS producers saw the ad or the script for the ad until it aired last night. In retrospect, it was pretty stupid of pro-choicers to go to the mat when they weren’t sure what the final message would be. Now, they’re paying for it.
Utterly embarrassed, but wholly undeterred, pro-choicers are now moving onto attack strategy 2.0: accuse the ad of encouraging domestic violence against women. Puleeze.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
