Bad News for Hillary

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

I am a bit surprised by this:

CNNGALLUP found that 51 percent say they definitely won’t vote for Clinton (D-N.Y.) in 2008, another 32 percent might consider it, and only 16 percent vow to back her. That means committed anti-Hillary voters outnumber pro-Hillary voters by 3-1. The poll suggests she can forget about crossover votes – 90 percent of Republicans and 75 percent of conservatives say there’s no way they’d back her.

Hillary has recently embraced somewhat hawkish policy policy positions in an effort to move to the center. This probably did her no good with conservatives, and may well have cost her some liberal votes. She has been under fire from “peace mom” Cindy Sheehan (who now says Hillary’s husband killed more Iraqis than Bush has, via Professor Reynolds), which has certainly hurt her standing among liberal peaceniks.

This poll is early, as things certainly could change by 2008. It does seem to indicate, however, that Sen. Clinton’s attempts at wooing moderate and conservative voters have so far been unsuccessful.

Abortion is Racist

Sunday, January 22nd, 2006

It has been 33 years since the controversial Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationally. Pro-Lifers often compare this ruling to the Dred Scott decision. As with the supporters of that infamous ruling, abortion supporters have a rather racially dubious history:

Aside from the fact that abortion is murder, there are two very important reasons why black people should be represented in great numbers at the March for Life rally:

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was the ultimate white supremacist

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America makes a futile effort to deny that its founder Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist. Eugenics is a pseudo-science that claims some races are genetically superior and more fit to survive than others. As a eugenicist, Sanger’s goals were to discourage the “unfit” and “inferior” from reproducing. In her 1922 book Pivot of Civilization, she called for segregation of “morons, misfits, and the maladjusted” and sterilization of “genetically inferior races.”
