I haven’t pulled a New York Times (see the FAQ’s/NSFAQ’s for an explanation) in a while, but I just saw this last night on my RSS service (and I forget which feed; sorry) so I went on a google rampage this morning and have finally found what I was looking for.
I know I have some Brownback fans in my readership, and I’m sure that they aren’t going to like this at all. I’ve long ago scratched him from my list over his support of building the yellow brick road to citizenship. So, here’s some food for thought on the Republican press conference hosted by MSNBC:
VERY curiously, the favorite of the Christian-conservative community, Sam Brownback, stated that he COULD support a pro-choice Republican if he agreed with that nominee on 80 percent of the issues. This is diametrically opposed to the stated position of many social conservatives who see the abortion issue as an absolute litmus test. Something tells me Sen. Brownback is going to have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do to a lot of people.
Meanwhile, Sen. McCain (R/D-AZ was recently photoed over the shoulder of “Teddy K” at a pro-amnesty Senate pep-rally, urrrr, I mean press conference.
