One of the pleasures of reading blogs is finding great commentary from just good, regular guys, and JohnMcG has posted one of the best over at VN on a post about Sarah Palin:
There is symbolism that is hard for pro-lifers to miss.
In the run-up to their Convention, the Democrats expected pro-lifers to be thrilled that they supported the choice to have a child while strongly and unequivocally supporting the Supreme Court decision that makes it impossible to enact restrictions [on abortion]. Then they nominated a Catholic pro-choice candidate, setting the stage for Communion Wars II, which we all enjoyed so much the first time around. They let Bob Casey, Jr. speak, but he rushed through any suggestion that he is pro-life.
The Republicans nominated a younger woman who has always been pro-life, and has demonstrated a commitment to it in her life. They are essentially saying, this is the future of the party. And I must confess I like it.
I like it, and I love it. Obviously there are many reactions to it, heads exploding from the left and the so-called "radicals" like the Vox Nova anti-Republicans. But my guess is that if these folks are truly pro-life then they are in for, in the words of Robert Plant, "a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time" either voting for Obama or sitting this one out.
On another note, I agree with another comment from JohnMcG on the Catholics Against Biden blog that they should probably nix the picture of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist from the mashup at the top. Maybe it could be replaced with a cartoon of Joe Biden shoving his Rosary Beads down Rick Santorum's throat? Just a thought....
