What Rove told Dobson about Miers

It's official: Harriet Miers is anti-choice. We suspected as much, but now we know for sure, thanks to Karl Rove's pathological inability to keep a secret.

James Dobson, chairman of the SpongeBob-hating religious group Focus on the Family, has revealed that two days before Miers was nominated, Rove assured him that she attended "a very conservative church, which is almost universally pro-life." (The rest of us are, of course, anti-life.)

Dobson said Rove also told him that Miers had been a member of Texas Right to Life, an antiabortion group, and had "taken on the American Bar Association on the issue of abortion."

But wait, there's some good news. A poll by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center found that only 33 percent support Miers' confirmation, 27 percent are opposed, and 40 percent have no opinion. Okay, so 40 percent having no opinion is scary, but the rest is encouraging...

On average, aren't those of us on the left more pro-life than the right wingers who claim to be?

We oppose war and the slaughter of innocent people.

Some of us oppose the death penalty.

We support sustainable environments that help life grow and prosper.

And on it goes... I hope this alone is enough to stop her confirmation. Roberts was enough... our country deserves better than anyone Bush pulls out of his ass.
