    Democrats couldn't have asked for a better wedge issue. Re-litigating contraception. This almost assures more women votes for Democrats..and not only in the Presidential elections.

    More and more one can't help but wondering..do Republicans really want to lose?

    Absolutely!!!!! Obama is coasting...

    Meanwhile, Sheriff Arpaio is birtherizing and Hannity is editing/doctoring Obama's college tapes...

    I wonder what James O'Keefe is up to...

    Quite possibly they want to lose because it's to much work to clean up their messes.

    They must. :lol:

    I've heard that the great Cuban hope for Repubs is pretty damn dumb in reality. Rick Perry caliber dumb actually but getting himself involved in this bullshit is beyond stupid for the presidential hopeful.

    Blunt is simply irrelevant. <shrug>

    The GOP got into bed with the anti-choice movement.

    Now they're stuck with it.

    The GOP is completely stuck in absolutist mode right now, the Democrats know it, and they're gonna soak this for all it's worth. It makes it easy for them to appear to be the adults in the room. Even better for the Dems, the GOP is showing no signs of getting past it. The Rush/Hannity/Norquist all-or-nothing, we-must-crush-them routine is driving the party right off the freakin' cliff.

    Their probable nominee is doing everything he can to pretend he's an absolutist too, but no one is buying it. What a mess.

    Only in the leap from the lion's head will he prove his worth.

    So a defeated amendment that few have heard about is a winner for Democrats? Is that proof that Dems have nothing to run on, after 5 years in power, or what?
    Given the Dems have elected Joe Biden as VP they shouldn't go around calling people dumb.
