Again, this is NOT about Sarah Palin. This is about the GOPs policies in women's issues. Way to deflect.

The GOP is in the process of hanging itself on this one. The DEMs are smart enough to let them do it.

I encourage ALL true Republican Candidates on local, state and Federal levels to campaign on the need to put and keep women in their place in the home having babies and taking care of their men. It is the right thing to do.

The GOP did the damage to themselves. These guys just don't seem to get that.

I am practicing my sarcasm. I always encourage my enemies to take bad advice.

Don't worry, from the posts here, they don't see the obvious.

Correction: The DEMS are attempting to hang this on the entire GOP and only the GOP's. REPUBLICANS and WOMEN are smart enough to not fall for it.

"NEWSER) A pair of Georgia lawmakers are planning to introduce legislation similar to the "personhood" amendment defeated in Mississippi last week. The bill...will be introduced in the state Senate by a Republican, but its sponsor in the Republican-controlled House is... Rick Crawford, an extremely conservative Democrat."
Georgia Democrat Seeks 'Personhood' Amendment - Pro-life lawmakers sponsoring measure that failed in Miss.

"The amendment has been endorsed by candidates for governor from both major parties..."

"The drive for personhood amendments has split the anti-abortion forces nationally. Some groups call it an inspired moral leap, while traditional leaders of the fight, including National Right to Life and the Roman Catholic bishops, have refused to promote it..."

Yeah, okay. Except that it isn't the Democrats who slip misogynistic policies to GOP candidates and then use hypnotism to make them say the things they say. None of the GOP candidates really have any need for help in coming up with this crap themselves.

I am also not quite sure that the promise of equality for all ("races, sexual predilections, genders") counts as promising special favors - well, perhaps in your world it does. That's probably why you find the GOP candidates so appealing - they cater to minds that are stuck in the past.
