I haven't learned enough to form a real opinion, but I have noticed one important thing: The haters, both left and right, have lined up against him. That's a really good sign.

They were already lined up.  When speculation was rampant about female candidates, derogatory emails were already being sent in the US Senate.  Robert's nomination came as a surprise to many, but some were already lined up to oppose irrespective of candidate.

NARAL's decision for pulling the add made me chuckle darkly.  They cited 'miscontrual' of their message, while their primary PR person (a male) resigned.  Guess 'miscontrual' is a euphamism for lies, libel and slander.  Yes, libel and slander.  The lies were both spoken and printed.

I'm not normally a litigious person, but if some group tried to equate something I said or wrote in one year,  tie it to an event 7 years after, and tried to pin it on whatever I said, I'd be filing a lawsuit for at least defamation of character.

NARAL again...sheesh.  Their latest attack ad seemed almost surreal.  National Abortion Rights showing scenes of families with smiling children.  NARAL and smiling children?  Trying to figure that one out and it's making my brain itch.

Having just seen a 3D ultrasound of my fourth grandchild (third granddaughter...another sister for Nicole and Abigail, and who looks exactly like Nicole) at five months gestation, a perfectly formed pink little human being, moving her fingers, arms, hands and feet (and sticking out her tongue! ) I was amazed anew at the miraculous process of procreation. I can't imagine that abortion would have gained the foothold that it has in our society if this technology were available 30 years ago.

Any suggestions for a name? We're stumped!
