Asked in a comments thread about Sarah Palin: "How can she be pro-life, but then go on hunting trips with her family?" It reminds me of a conversation I recounted some years ago on the main site between a pro-life friend and the then-antiabortion Dennis Kucinich:
A friend of mine makes it a point to thank politicians who share his commitment to the pro-life cause whenever the opportunity presents itself. A few years ago, he approached his congressman, Dennis Kucinich, and thanked him for standing up for the unborn despite the pressures of belonging to a pro-choice party.
"I am very consistent on this issue," Kucinich replied. "I don’t eat meat."
Babies=hamburgers. Or mooseburgers.
When asked by Tom Brokaw last night to give his criteria for use of American military power for humanitarian purposes, Obama said the Holocaust would have been a good reason to intervene.
Could Obama be such a historical illiterate that he doesn't know the allies DID use military force to liberate the Nazi death camps? When the camps were liberated, more than 11 million Americans were in uniform.
A stumble like this by Sarah Palin would have earned her a Dan Quayle de-merit badge, and would have sent Maureen Dowd into full sneer.
