    I work with a right to lifer. She was going on and on about the public option paying for abortions, she will NEVER let HER taxes be used for that. I shut her up with, Hey I don't like paying taxes to support your irresponsible daughter who couldn't keep her legs together and that brat of hers. But I didn't get a choice or a vote or I would have made sure she was on birth control. So you don't get to tell other women what they are going to do with their bodies since the likelihood of you paying one penny in taxes to pay for anyone's abortion is ZERO and you got no skin in.

      Dana Milbank, in today's WaPo, reports that a heckler showed up at Nancy Pelosi's rally.

      "Nancy Pelosi, you'll burn in hell for this," said a voice, amplified by a bullhorn, from about 50 yards away.

      "Thank you, insurance companies of America," Pelosi replied to the man. Actually, they were abortion protesters, and they were loud.

      "We won't pay for murder!" a heckler heckled.

      Why don't I remember such protests when Capital Punishment is debated. It does nothing more than legitimate violence in the eyes of those who haven't outgrown the Monkey-See, Monkey-Do phase.

      How would they describe a Just War standard that doesn't mark them as hypocrites for being silent when Bush's unjustness became obvious?

        pro Iraq War. I have diaried here about Iraq, the unreported costs. 1.3 million innocent Iraqis dead, nearly that many maimed, 5 million or more refugees and another 5 million wandering their shelled out country looking for a safe place. When faced with the facts she was fine with the dead, the unborn dead. They died for a good cause, a reason tho she wasn't sure what it might be and they didn't died at the end of a suction hose. Hypocrite? I find it too kind an adjective for them.

        They are hard right authoritarian reactionists.
