    are they?
    This time the "wedge issues" wedged the GOP.
    Who's bright idea was it to turn and attack on abortion? Dems have always run from this issue, this time they ran on it AND WON!
    Could it be that finally the poll data, going back two or three decades, that the right to choose is overwhelmingly acceptable to Americans, finally sank in? Was it when the Right went after contraception, that it finally dawned on people that their issue wasn't just abortion but an attempt to suppress sex? Was it the attack on Sandra Fluke, someone who does not fit anyone's idea of a slut, that crystallized the public's perception?
    It was the stupid comments about rape.
    It exposed the ignorance and insensitivity of the men who would control women's bodies.
    And women, wisely, moved, en mass, away from the knuckledraggers.
    And since the Obama campaign is not a blinkered white mans club, that movement was noted and capitalized upon.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
