I’m over at Kleinheider’s making an ass of myself about abortion. I would have thought someone would have called me on the unfairness of claiming personal insult, but so far no one has.
My best line?
As for your hysterical outrage about linking abortion, gay rights, and racial discrimination, I can barely bother to reply. If you can’t see how those are all issues of bodily autonomy and self-determination, I can’t help you.
But really, we both know, you don’t want my help. You want to win one for your side by putting an uppity liberal woman in her place.
I only hope you’ll begin to speak in your weird right-wing language like you did in this thread before this winds down. Once you start in with the “Californi-cating” and the “lezbo couples” and the “Helen Degenerate” (Is that a jab at both Ellen Degeneres and Helen Thomas?), it’s a bit like watching a possessed man spewing forth in some foreign language.
So, go check it out, if you’re bored this afternoon.
[Edited to add that you should go check out Exador’s comment. Or, shoot, I’ll just reproduce it here:
Doesn’t that show that just about everybody can agree that abortion is not a first choice for even the most pro-choicer?
Can we agree that it’s a difficult decision for any woman?
This, my friends, is why I think it’s impossible to write off the libertarians. Sure, they swagger around all he-man like, and burb, and drink beer, and shoot things, but sometimes they just say things in a simple, elegant, and beautiful way and it makes me think that they’re not as easily discountable as we’d like to believe (and that’s not just because I agree with him).]
