The Pro-Abort Candidate for Whom Certain Catholics Would Have Us Vote [UPDATED]
Victor Davis Hanson has his number:
... Today it was no accident in the wake of the attacks on Palin that suddenly Obama comes out with pro-abortion ads attacking the pro-life position of McCain. The timing is a sort of subtext about the current and recent Palin jr. and sr. pregnancies: apparently Team Obama want the viewer to see a pregnant teen-ager and a Down syndrome child and ponder something like: "under John McCain abortion in these cases would have been impossible."
In some quarters, we're hearing from fellow Catholics "Why didn't Sarah Palin mention abortion in her speech?"
I'm sure some are asking the question legitimately. To them, I answer that when she mentioned her "perfect" baby Trig - who was born 4 months ago with Down Syndrome, Gov. Palin gave the most powerful statement in favor of life ever delivered by a candidate at a Republican National Convention.
Walking the walk is more powerful than talking the talk.
However, for those asking the question merely to assuage their consciences over their decision to support the candidate who ran this ad on the very day Gov. Palin gave her speech, it must suck to be you right about now.
