  •  Now we really find out who runs the ReThugs (none)
    This is it.  The moment we've all been waiting for.

    The moment when the country-club Republicans who say 'we're not the party of Dobson' are put to the test.

    Is the Rethuglican party the party of Dobson - the foot soldiers - OR is it the party of K-Street/Wall Street and the big $$$ donors.

    Yes - we ought to make this issue about Roe v. Wade.

    How many Joe Q. Publix got upset over Kelo?  Over the Patriot Act?

    Many on here and Redstate did, but face the facts, we're political junkies.

    There is virtually no reason why we shouldn't make this issue to be Roe v. Wade.  If you honestly think we could 'peel away a few pro-life Evangelicals or pro-life Catholics' because we don't 'want to appear obstructionist', consider this:

    1.  We are already overwhelmingly seen as pro-choice amongst the general (read: non-DKos, non-Redstate.org crowd).

    2. Close to 80% think overturning Roe v. Wade is a bad idea.

    3.  Many in the generally public say 'the Democrats don't stand for anythinkg'.  

    We might as well make a stand on this.
