Noted Loser Bob Shrum Crawls Out from Under Rock, Invokes Anderson's Law

Deal Hudson reports at InsideCatholic:
Bob Shrum, consultant to the losing presidential campaigns of Gore and Kerry, emerged from beneath his rock recently to post a tirade against Bart Stupak and the Catholic bishops.

A graduate of two Jesuit universities, Shrum deems himself qualified to pronounce the position of Stupak and the bishops on abortion in the health care bill to be "at odds with the social teachings I learned in Catholic school."

Even worse, the insistence of Stupak and the bishops to keep federal funding for abortion out of the bill "transgresses the line drawn by JFK in 1960."
Half a century later, the bishops are attempting to achieve by indirection what they cannot achieve outright—a partial ban on a woman’s right to choose. Having abetted thousands of priests in molesting children, they’re now set on abusing health reform.
"As a debate involving the Catholic Church (either a discussion about the Church specifically, or a discussion in which the Church is taking a position) grows longer, the probability of someone mentioning the sex scandal approaches one."

~ Anderson's Law
