  •  is there a line that we can say "this is crazy!" ? (5+ / 0-)

    I understand that it's considered bad politics to come right out and say "enough!", although I'd do it. But then I'd be a bad politician, I guess.

    anyway, as an experiment, let's say 40% of the country believes something dangerous and nuts. So politically it would be trouble to come out strongly against that group. We'd have to be skillful, use finesse to counter them.

    Let's say it's even worse, 49%. Ok, now how crazy would people have to be before our representatives actually call it "crazy"?

    I think, in this Iowa case, there aren't enough of the anti-choicers to pass this nutty bill. But if it were close would there be enough voices to stop it? Would we be able to condemn it or would we avoid calling it what it is?

    How crazy does something have to be before those in positions of power call it "crazy"?

      this crazy. The anti-choicers believe that women are irrational, impulsive, emotional lesser beings who must be subordinated and controlled.
