    So could have vetoed it anyways. Face it. The only "conservative" thing Ronnie did was cut taxes. And break the constitution.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Re: D'oh! RCN to Nix Covered Abortions from Insurance Policy

    As long as there are humans, there will be hypocrisy, because our hopes, beliefs, and dreams often do not coincide with common sense or reality.

I certainly wouldn't expect the DNC to offer only insurance for their employees that contained the coverage of abortion. Business practice often overrides political ideology, as it should imo.
    this was a conscious choice on the part of the RNC. i believe they could have easily opted out.

    The Cigna employees said the RNC didn't choose to opt out of abortion coverage when given the opportunity, Politico.com reported.

    Looks like the right is taking some heat from this screw up. From a blogger at Politico.com:

    For thirty years, we have fought tooth and nail to prevent our tax money from being used to pay for abortions. Turns out, we were apparently doing it through donating to the political party that was ostensibly on our side. This betrayal is so fundamental to the majority of people who donate to the RNC that it’s almost unspeakable. I have no doubt that many of the staffers there will miss the point, so allow me to make it clearly: you have caused every person who donated to support your livelihood to become involved in what they perceive to be a grave moral evil.

    The RNC’s defense thus far seems to be excusable negligence; blaming it on some (surely departed) staffer who checked a box almost 20 years ago, and whoops, we weren’t careful enough. So sorry. It won’t happen again.

    Not good enough....

    In order for the RNC to regain the trust of their donors, they must disclose the names of all people involved in any way of the selection of their health care plan. And those people must be summarily fired. No severance packages, no golden parachutes; fired. For cause.

    No pro-lifer in good conscience can give them a dime until this happens.
    This isn't an issue of "Ooops! We made a mistake and we're sorry." This is "Ummm...we got away with it for nearly 20 years. Now, we have to tuck our tails between our legs and say all the right things to downplay this blunder and get beyond this embarrassment fast!!!"

    The RNC membership is pissed and I can't say I blame them. The hypocrisy to one of their core values has been exposed. (I wonder how Rush will spin this...or if he said anything at all about it today? )
